RALEIGH, NC– Five people were killed and two others seriously injured in a mass shooting in Raleigh on Thursday evening.

The Raleigh Police Department said Friday morning these five people were the victims who died in the shooting:

  • Nicole Connors, 52
  • Susanne Karnatz, 49
  • Maria Marshal, 35
  • Gabriel Torres, 29
  • James Thompson, 16

These other two were injured and remain with WakeMed:

  • The 15-year-old allegedly shoots

Two of the victims were police officers.

Gabriel Torres was an off-duty officer who previously served in the Marine. He was married and had a young daughter. He was on his way to work when he was killed.

“This is an extremely, extremely painful event for our officers and myself,” said RPD chief Estella Patterson. “I was immediately surprised, shocked by what happened.”

Casey Joseph Clark, 33, is a K-9 handler who was injured in the shooting but has since been discharged from the hospital.

The 16-year-old victim, James Thompson, was a junior at Knightdale High School.

“This is an incredibly difficult time for our school community as well as the broader Raleigh community,” Principal Keith Richardson wrote in a statement to parents. He went on to say that counselors and the District Crisis Team would be available on campus for the next week to support anyone who needs help.

Susan Karnatz was married and had three sons aged 10, 13 and 14. She was also an avid runner.


Mary Marshall was engaged to marry. She was also just 10 days short of her 35th birthday.

Her fiancé Robert Steele said she was shot while walking her dog.

“She was really nice, always friendly. Whenever we got packages when we weren’t home, she put them in our house and left a note on the door. Go upstairs, you know?” Neighbor Sherron McDonald said about Marshall.


Nicole Connors’ husband told ABC11 that he found his wife and dog Sammy both shot dead in the street. A neighbor was injured and was lying on the ground next to them.


ABC11 crews are gathering more details on all of the victims and will continue to update this article and share their stories during our evening newscasts.

“There are several families in our community who are waking up this morning without their loved ones,” said Mary-Ann Baldwin, Mayor of Raleigh. “Nobody can imagine what they are all going through.”

According to the investigators, the 15-year-old suspect is a man.
