— The William Peace University Singers made a joyful noise to help a Raleigh family recover from a violent attack. They performed Wednesday at Trinity United Methodist Church to raise money to defray the medical bills of a couple attack on Jan. 7. 

Police have indicted brothers Shabar Master Marshall, 16, and Jahaad Tariem Allah Marshall, 26, for the attack. 

The female victim told a 911 dispatcher that she and her husband woke up in the middle of the night to find two men standing over their bed. The men demanded money, took her from the bedroom and assaulted her.

She managed to escape and run to a neighbor's house, where she called 911. Once outside, she heard her husband get shot, she told the dispatcher.

The gunshot wound to his spine left him paralyzed.
