RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Several people were injured in what authorities described as an “active shooting” situation in a residential neighborhood of Raleigh, North Carolina Thursday night.
“State and local officials are at the scene working to stop the shooter and keep people safe,” Gov. Roy Cooper tweeted.
The Raleigh Police Department said in a statement via Twitter it was “at the scene of an active shooting” and advised residents in several neighborhoods to remain indoors.
Police closed several streets in the area, and numerous police vehicles were parked both on the street and in driveways of two-story houses. The neighborhood is adjacent to the Neuse River Greenway Trail and is approximately 14 kilometers northeast of downtown Raleigh.
At least three people linked to the shooting were being treated at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh Thursday night, but no further information was immediately available, hospital spokeswoman Deb Laughery said.
A police spokesman did not immediately respond to a message asking for comment.
