Wake County News

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Raleigh police are investigating after two people were found shot in two different locations Sunday night.

According to police, officers responded to the 4100-block of Western Boulevard – outside a Circle K convenience store – around 11:45 p.m. in reference to a shooting.

Once at the scene, police found an adult female who had been shot and was suffering from what officials said appeared to be non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

Shortly after finding the injured woman, officers went to WakeMed to see a walk-in gunshot victim who also had what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, authorities said.

Police are investigating both shootings and originally said that their preliminary findings show that the shooting occurred in the 4100-block of Valley Stream Drive, which is 10 miles from where the woman was found shot.

A follow-up release from Raleigh police said their initial belief was incorrect and the two shootings were not related.

The woman who was found outside the Circle K is believed to have been shot there and not on Valley Stream Drive.
