A man shot on Monday evening has died of his wounds, and Raleigh police want to talk to three people seen running from the Poole Road area at the time of the shooting.

Andrew Willie Brown, 47, was shot while he was in the 2400 block of Poole Road around 7:45 p.m. Monday. He was taken to WakeMed, where he died Friday afternoon.

A surveillance camera caught three people running away from that area of Poole Road Monday evening. They may have headed to the Melvid Court area.

Two people wore all-dark clothing, and the third person wore dark pants and a light-colored shirt.

Investigators want to identify and find the people to determine if they have information helpful to the investigation.

Anyone with information that might assist detectives is asked to call the Detective Division at 919-996-3555 or Crime Stoppers at 919-226-CRIME. Crime Stoppers accepts anonymous tips and pays rewards for information that helps to clear cases.

    Nowhere in the article does it mention that this shooting happened at the perimeter of an elementary school campus, just the "2200 Block". The surveillance video shows the individuals wanted for questioning running past mobile classrooms.
