    shooting in Southeast raleigh

     
    Police say three shot in Southeast Raleigh; suspect on the run
    Three public schools were ordered on lockdown following the shooting, but an official said there are no indications that school personnel or students were among the shooting victims. All three were taken to WakeMed with what police say did not appear to be life-threatening injuries.

    The shootings happened near the intersection of Tipton and Coleman streets, three blocks east of Ligon Middle School, said Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue. Police have cordoned off three blocks just west of Rock Quarry Road, as detectives and investigators from the City-County Bureau of Identification look for evidence.

    Someone called 911 just before 2:30 p.m. to report the shootings, Sughrue said

    Police say the suspected shooter was described as a black man in his late teens to early 20s who stands about 6 feet tall and weighs about 185 pounds. He was wearing a white jacket with some type of black writing or graphics on it and was last seen fleeing on foot towards Rock Quarry Road.

    Volunteers were sorting clothing at the Helping Hand Mission on Rock Quarry when they heard a series of gunshots, said executive director Sylvia Wiggins.
