RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A man was wounded in a Saturday night shooting at a Raleigh sweepstakes spot at a former Burger King along Six Forks Road, police said.

The incident was reported just after 8:30 p.m. at The Vortex at 340 East Six Forks Road, which is the former Burger King in front of a now-closed Kroger, according to Raleigh police.

A man was driven to Duke Hospital in Raleigh after the shooting, which happened about a block from Wake Forest Road, police said.

The wounded man was later taken by crews to WakeMed in Raleigh for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, according to Raleigh police.

It’s unclear if the shooting was a robbery attempt.

There is no word about a suspect, but officers from at least eight police SUVs were at the scene investigating.

Officers were in the parking lot looking for what appeared to be shell casings.
