Wake County News

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Raleigh police said no charges have been filed against a person who killed a man in a shootout in a Glenwood Avenue parking deck early Sunday morning.

The incident was reported in the parking garage in the 600 block of Glenwood Avenue just before 2:30 a.m. Sunday, police say.

Willie Britton, 30, died in the shooting and a suspect was taken into custody, according to Raleigh police.

On Monday, police said Britton approached a car with people he was in an earlier argument with and had a “gun pointed at the occupants.”

“One of the occupants exited the vehicle with a gun and the two shot at each other,” the Raleigh police news release said.  Britton was hit in the shooting and later died.

Police said that “further consultation with the Wake County District Attorney’s Office will take place before final determinations are made concerning the case.”

However, for now, no charges have been filed and no suspects are being sought, police said.

A 911 call from the scene that night was also released Monday. In the call, a man tells police about the shooting.

“A guy came up to my car with a gun and my friend had to shoot him!” the caller said.

No one else was injured in the incident.
