RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Just before 10:30 p.m. Friday night, Raleigh police responded to a shooting off of Red Clay Drive, which is about a block off Capital Boulevard.

Upon arrival to the 2900 block of Red Clay Drive, the Raleigh Police Department found two adult males who suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

Both men were transported in separate private vehicles for treatment, officer said. However, police did not identify the victims, say where they had been shot or release a cause for the shooting.
