Wake County News

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The pharmacist injured during a shooting at a Walgreens in Garner on Feb. 14 has been released from the hospital, CBS 17 has confirmed. 

Sarah Wright, 31, of Clayton was one of two people shot inside the Walgreens on U.S. 70.

She has been released from WakeMed. 

Wright, and the other victim, 33-year-old Brandon Gordon, of Garner were listed in serious condition when they were transported to the hospital following the shooting.  

Gordon remains hospitalized. 

Stephen Denning is accused of pulling out a gun and shooting Wright and Gordon at the pharmacy, police said. 

Police said it didn’t appear that robbery was a motivation in the shooting and that the shooting stemmed from an argument the suspect had with the pharmacist.

Denning, 60, lives on Henry Drive – which is a block from the Walgreens. 

Denning was later apprehended at the Golden Corral just north of the Walgreens in Raleigh when he was shot by a Wake County deputy, officials said.

Denning was also taken to WakeMed. His current status was not released. 

Denning has been charged with one count of attempted murder and one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. Garner police said more charges are expected.
