— Police have been called almost 30 times over the past 12 months to a Raleigh home where a man was shot overnight. A check of calls to 928 Beverly Drive shows reports of assault, drug activity and four gun-related reports including Sunday morning's shooting.

A police spokeswoman said some of those calls were to serve warrants or to followup on on-going investigations. Not all 29 visits resulted from a 911 call.

Officers were called to the home just after 3 a.m. Minutes later, they were alerted to a man dropped off, dead of a gun shot at WakeMed. Police believe Devonte Tillery, 28, of 1413 Curfman St., was shot at the Beverly Drive home. How he got to WakeMed remains a mystery, and police have not identified a suspect in his shooting.

Neighbors tell WRAL News that the location of the gunfire is known to host loud parties into the night. No one was willing to talk on camera for fear of retaliation.

According to Wake County property records, the home is owned by William Maurice Cassady.

The mysterious shooting capped a violent weekend in Raleigh that began with the discovery of a dead body Friday night outside a popular nightclub. Antonio O'Neal Early, 31, was found shot to death in a parking lot on the 1700 block of Trawick Road.

Two men were arrested Saturday and linked to that crime.

A Raleigh mother was shot and killed Friday night in the 500 block of Bragg Street, and two men were injured. Police have yet to identify a suspect or make an arrest in the death of Kimberly Holder.
