Woman, 10-month-old wounded in shooting at Raleigh apartment complex

Posted August 19, 2014

— Raleigh police were seeking two men early Tuesday in connection with a shooting at a northeast Raleigh apartment complex that wounded a 26-year-old woman and 10-month-old girl. 

Officers responded to 4716 Courtney Lane at about 11:30 p.m. According to investigators, the woman and child were inside a vehicle with a 26-year-old man at the time of the shooting.

The woman suffered a non-life-threatening injury to her shoulder, and the 10-month-old had cuts to her head that were likely caused by shattered glass, police said. Their names and conditions have not been released.

The man inside the car, who Raleigh police said was the target of the shooting, was not injured. The man, woman and child were at the apartment complex because of a meeting the man had prearranged. No other details about the circumstances of the shooting have been released.

Authorities said Tuesday that there are searching for two black men in connection with the incident. One man is described as 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and about 200 pounds. He has dreadlocks, was shirtless and may have been driving a dark blue Chrysler 300. 

The second man was described as 6 foot to 6 feet 2 inches tall. He was wearing a fitted shirt.

Anyone with information about the shooting should call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for tips that lead to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.

    I would be guessing, but I'm sure someone in that car knew who these guys are.

    nefertitimurphy. You are so foolish to think that the guns are evil. Guns have no feeling or intent. It is who is behind the gun that is evil. If these people did not have a gun it would have been a knife or a stick or a rock. No matter what you wish to believe it is NOT the guns fault. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. And it has been going on since the beginning of time. Do away with evil people before you do away with guns.

    Go back and read your Bible, you will see what is evil. That was long before guns were invented. The true evil are humans, not objects.

    People are evil not inanimate objects. Hunters use them to feed their families, is that evil?
