— Paramedics found two men with gunshot wounds inside a wrecked car on Interstate 440 early Sunday, Raleigh police said.

A 911 caller reported seeing a single, wrecked car on the shoulder of the Outer Beltline, between Wake Forest Road and Capital Boulevard, around 3:30 a.m. Police said that first responders found Julian Annan Quao, 24, of Raleigh and William Deontia Hall, 25, of Wake Forest, inside the car.

Both men were shot in the back, police said. They were taken to WakeMed to be treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Quao was listed in good condition, and Hall has been released from WakeMed, hospital officials said.

Police said the shooting occurred sometime after Quao and Hall left the 40/30 Room nightclub on Capital Boulevard. Quao's injuries then caused him to crash on the Outer Beltline.

Investigators were unsure of the exact location of the shooting. They did not have a suspect or motive Sunday evening.
