Police identified the victim as 41-year-old Timothy Shawn Robertson. Robertson was transported to WakeMed Center by private vehicle with non-life-threatening injuries.

The shooting happened shortly before midnight in the area of Mangum Street and Garner Road, in the same neighborhood where 24-year-old Akiel Denkins was killed Monday in an officer-involved shooting.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing, police said, and no arrests have been made.

    I agree that in many instances that is the case. However, I don't believe that to be the case with downtown Raleigh. Downtown Raleigh is far from impoverished. The downtown area is more bustling than ever before. There are more businesses, more new homes and more jobs than ever. There are more opportunities than ever.

    Regardless of who the "they" is in the previous post, the fact is that The drugs the violence and killing our difficult to stop in any neighborhood regardless of race. The problem is not race the problem is poverty when the community is in impoverished community and people have no jobs and no hope and no future crime does increase. In addition stores that would provide jobs tend to move out or not come into the area which compounds the effect even further. Another complication is the moon areas of low income that are poverty-stricken the young people perceive that education does not help. And then a vicious cycle begins. It is not race the breeds the violence it is poverty. The problem is that people of different color are experiencing higher rates of unemployment. When I was a teacher I learned in a course that students who live in poverty act different they laugh more in response to the stress. People but do not live in poverty or do not live in dire need do not understand.

    I can't speak for Sibylle, but I would venture to say 'they' refers to the non upstanding, criminal element. It's so completely sad this gets turned into a black and white issue. There are bad elements within all races. There are also many, many, many fine upstanding citizens within all races. I really wish people would break this down to criminal vs non criminal issue in lieu of black and white issue. Because, when it's all said and done, that's really what it's all about.

    I see you RPD. I see you and I thank you. I have no doubt your stomachs dropped when this call came in, fearing the worst. But you answered the call, you walked into an unknown and dangerous situation, you kept the community safe. At a time when you receive daily threats and calls to violence, you showed up to help the same community threatening you. As always, you walked the thin blue line. I truly believe actions speak louder than words and your continued class and grace speaks volumes. Thank you.
