Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — Two people are charged in connection with an attempted robbery in Raleigh Wednesday night.

Raleigh police said officers responded to a shots-fired call at Farrington Drive shortly before 8 p.m. When they arrived, they spoke with 28-year-old Damian Anthony Powell, who alleged that he had been the victim of an attempted armed robbery.

Around the same time officers went responding to that call, Duke Raleigh Hospital called officers about a man who was at the hospital with a gunshot wound. Authorities learned that the man, who was later identified as 18-year-old Cesar Solorzano, was involved in the earlier incident.

Authorities also tracked down 18-year-old Antoine Tobourrus Sanders. Both are charged with one count of attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Police are still conducting an investigation into the incident.
