Raleigh police arrest two in Brier Creek shooting

Posted July 21, 2010

— Raleigh police have two people in custody in connection with a fatal shooting Saturday in a Brier Creek parking lot.

Jason Nathaniel Wright, 27, of Durham, was shot outside the Carolina Ale House restaurant at 7901 Brier Creek Parkway, around 2:15 a.m. Saturday, police said. Wright was taken to Duke University Hospital, where he died.

On Wednesday, police arrested Reginald Dale Dixon, 48, of Apt. 2A, 208 Gray Ave. in Durham, and David C. Bradsher, 40, of 400 Odell St. in Durham. Bradsher was charged with first-degree murder and was being held without bond.

Dixon faces a charge of accessory after the fact for driving Bradsher from the scene, according to his arrest warrant. He was being held on $50,000 bond.

Police have said the crime does not appear to be a random act.

    They have yet to say why this crime took place... drug deal? Someone toss an insult?

    Just another hidden benefit of diversity.

    DiscoStu65-i guarantee i already know what these guys are going to look like before the mugshots are posted

    Just like the perp in the tragic case of the 4yr old girl

    "The perps were overwhelmingly from Durham."

    That's mostly due to Durham's "socioeconomic diversity" (as the Wake County Schools would put it).

    People piling on Durham as usual. I expected that.

    Crime happens everywhere people.

    Imagine that, crime in Raleigh not actually caused by Raleigh residents.

    daddyankee..........we would be on the very same side in the Eve Carson tragedy. I would like to be the one to personally string up both of those scum buckets. BUT, my point is that there is bad in every city and town. , YES, there are a lot of gangs and just plain hateful people in Durham who mainly reside in some form on the eastern side. There are an abundance of gangs here also, but they are everyplace. I wish I was smart enough to know how to fix the problems, but before anything can be "fixed", the justice system has to change. Arresting, charging, trying and then letting go just about all of those people certainly is not going to solve or resolve anything. It MUST come from the top. Start in November!!!!

    aquamarine you illustrate my point exactly. Why is up to an outside actor to clean up a problem that ultimately has to be fixed from within and owned by it's own community.

    having lived previously in chapel hill and experienced home and car break-ins I started to weekly moniotr the police crime reports. The perps where overwhelmingly from Durham. And don't get me started on the eve carson tragedy.
