— Police charged three people Tuesday in connection with a fatal early-morning shooting at a north Raleigh apartment complex.

Officers responding to an emergency call at Brentwood West Apartments, at 3831 Brentwood Road, found Trevon Shaihid Beard, 19, in a vehicle parked at the scene.

Brothers Bionta Eugene Bryant, 17, and Robert Alphonso Bryant, 19, both of 2641-232 Appliance Court, were later arrested at a motel on Appliance Court – about 3 miles from where the shooting happened – and were charged with murder.

A third man, Isaiah Marquice Beverley, 20, was taken into custody after police received a report of a man walking into Duke Health Raleigh with a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

He was transported to WakeMed and will be arrested after his release.

Jim Sughrue, a spokesman for the Raleigh Police Department, said detectives are still looking into the circumstances of both shootings.

"That and other aspects of the case remain under investigation," Sughrue said. "It remains clear that the crime was not a random act."

    "LKG-Lover" are you delusional? The crime these upstanding citizens committed Had Nothing to do with the Economy! Please explain to me how you could have possibly inferred that?

    We seriously need to go on a prison building spree. If a person is convicted of murder or in any way harming a senior or a child just put them in prison and Honestly forget about them.

    North raleigh? It's barely outside the belt line. I thought that was "midtown"

    Raleigh needs to do like Durham and setup substations in some of those bad areas of town,in the actual apts.

    "People bash Durham but Raleigh is quickly passing them in the shootings stories this yr."

    I don't think one can really compare the crime in Raleigh to the amount of crime in Durham because the population of is so much greater it makes the crime rate per capita in Durham much higher.

    In the 80's it was a great area but it has been in decline ever sense. I feel sorry for hard working people who bought houses and raised families in that area but never saw the writing on the wall and now have to live in third world like neighborhoods with rampant crime, drugs, and gangs. It's all by design though.

    Desparate times make people do desparate things. If the economy doesn't get better, the trends will continue upward. Most natives would not consider Brentwood as being north raleigh today, maybe in the 60's. Today north Raleigh is north of 540 where it is much safer.

    Another black eye for Raleigh's rapidly fading image as a "safe" city. Shooting after shooting...........

    That`s so true lately. People bash Durham but Raleigh is quickly passing them in the shootings stories this yr. My car has been broken into multiple times in Raleigh over the yrs and buddy robbed at gunpoint by the convention center.Neighbors car was stolen on Capital Blvd while shopping.In the same time period nothing has happened to any of my friends or family in Durham..

    I recently moved to this apartment complex. Just a couple weeks prior to this, someone was mugged at knife point. I'm beginning to regret not going elsewhere.

    "That is why I will never live north of downtown."

    That's odd, I don't live there but I always thought of Southeast Raleigh as the not so great part of town and I've been through most of North Raleigh, so I thought.
