Listen: Teen shot 911 call

According to the 911 call, a woman says she was in her room when she heard a loud noise. She tells the 911 operator she believes someone was in the house with the 15 year old before he was shot.

911 Caller: "Oh my God! Is that a bullet hole in your head? Oh God hurry send an ambulance please!"

Neighbors tell ABC11 they are shocked. One neighbor, who doesn't want to be identified, said police have responded to the victim's home numerous times.

"I've been living out here 15, going on 16 years and it hasn't always been like this," the neighbor revealed.

According to Raleigh Police, law enforcement officers have responded to the home six times since Jan. 2015.

Last April, police responded to a domestic call involving a weapon. The following month, police received another call involving someone communicating a threat.

The unidentified neighbor says she feels unsafe.

"You're peeping out of the windows constantly trying to keep up with what's going on, if there is anything going on," she said

The teen is fighting to stay alive at WakeMed. Neighbors say they are praying.

"I hope for a miracle from God for him," said neighbor Sherry Voldeck.

Investigators say the teenager's injuries are serious. ABC11 attempted to talk with the family about this situation. They declined our request.
