— A lockdown at a Raleigh day center has been lifted after a brazen daylight shooting Monday afternoon resulted in a large police presence during the hunt for clues, authorities said.

The shooting occurred shortly after 2:30 p.m. in the 4000 block of Green Road, police said.

Authorities said one person was taken to WakeMed for treatment of a gunshot wound. That person's condition was unknown.

Pictures from the scene showed at least 11 markers that typically denote bullet casings at crime scenes. A motive in the incident was also pending.

The incident prompted officials at the Brentwood Child Care Center to impose a lockdown as a precaution. It was not clear how many children were at the center when the shooting occurred and the lockdown ordered. No injuries were reported at the child care center.

Authorities said the day care center and other local businesses were not involved in the incident.

Residents told police they heard up to five gunshots before finding an unidentified man lying in the middle of the street.

"This is normally a quiet area," said Brian Archibald, adding that he has lived in the area for two years.

Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call Raleigh CrimeStoppers at 919-834-HELP.
