Raleigh police are investigating a triple shooting that happened around 10:15 a.m. Wednesday.Officers were dispatched to 306 Maple St., and when they arrived at the scene, they discovered three victims. All three were taken to WakeMed.

Resident Salina Tillery's two teenage sons witnessed the violent scene.

"I ran home," Tillery said. "I was like, 'Oh my goodness, let me see if my sons are okay,' and they were."

The victims are identified as 27-year-old Rashed Amin Green, 29-year-old Fatima Dar-Salaam Elliott and 23-year-old Bradley Lamont Patterson.

Police said Green was shot in the abdomen and the hand, while Elliott was shot in the chest and Patterson was shot in the thigh.

Raleigh Police Department Public Information Officer Jim Sughrue said the shooting stemmed from a disagreement.

Warrants were obtained Wednesday charging 23-year-old Brandon Daniel Sloan with one count of attempted murder and two counts with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Officials are currently trying to locate Sloan. Officers found his car Wednesday afternoon less than two miles away from the crime scene at the Raleigh North Apartments off of Raleigh Blvd.

Sloan's criminal record revealed multiple charges including breaking and entering. The victims are also no strangers to the law. And according to residents, Maple Street is no stranger to crime, many dubbing it "Bloody Maple."

"Maple Street is rough out here for everybody," Tillery said.

Authorities warn that Sloan is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information concerning his whereabouts can call the RPD's Detective Division at (919) 996-3555 or Raleigh CrimeStoppers at (919) 834-HELP.
