Raleigh police have filed charges after a shooting at an apartment complex Sunday.

There were three men, two women, and a 3-year-old child in the apartment. A struggle began between the two alleged robbers and the victims. One of the victims, 27-year-old Henry Chavez Jr., was shot in the hand.

Police said the victims got control of the handgun and Schwepker-Thomas was shot in the hip. Both he and Mccalston were also hit with a baseball bat by one of the victims.

They fled the scene in a vehicle allegedly driven by 23-year-old Cassandra Marie Duplanti. They went to WakeMed and were detained by police there.

Mccalston is charged with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. Duplanti is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. Arrest warrants charging Schwepker-Thomas with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury will be served upon his release from the hospital.
