— Raleigh police responded to a shooting call Saturday night and found Traveon Antwane Hayes, 19, shot inside a vehicle in an apartment complex parking lot in the 6500 block of Suburban Drive.

Hayes, of 1215 S. Bloodworth St., had been shot multiple times and died after emergency crews took him to WakeMed, police said.
