Wake County News

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A person was shot near a bar along East Millbrook Road in Raleigh late Saturday night, police say.

The shooting happened around 11:45 p.m. at the Rose Bar at 2645 East Millbrook Road, according to Raleigh police.

A man was found in the parking lot of the Rose Bar and was being taken to a nearby hospital for injuries he suffered in the shooting, police said. His condition was not known early Sunday.

Police later said the man was shot in a grassy area beside the parking lot of the Rose Bar.

Saturday night’s shooting comes after three people were injured in a shooting at the Rose Bar in late November.

The shootings caught the attention of police and the owner of the bar was cited for violating the Governor’s executive order regarding occupancy limitations.

Just days later, Tyhrone Leak, 26, and Bradlee Armstrong, 34, were arrested in connection with the shooting, police said.

Leak was charged with shooting into an occupied property, carrying a concealed firearm and discharging a weapon within the City, police said.

Armstrong was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm to incite fear, police said.
