After a shooting on Thursday afternoon in Raleigh, North Carolina, five people are dead and two more are injured.
Around 8 o’clock, according to the police, a juvenile suspect was apprehended at a residence. Due to his young age, he was not named.
Every officer in the Raleigh Police Department is a “brother” or “sister,” and the loss of one of their own is a “tragedy,” according to Lt. Jason Borneo, who termed it a “heartbreaking day for our city.”
Before 11 p.m. ET, officials reported at a second press conference that one patient had been discharged from the hospital and the other was in critical condition.
