RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- A man was seriously injured in a shooting Sunday afternoon near Transfer Co. Food Hall in Raleigh.
Raleigh police responded to the 300 block of Chavis Way just after 5:30 p.m. for reports of a shooting. When officers arrived they found a man with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
ABC11 spoke with an eyewitness who first rendered aid to the gunshot victim as crews arrived. He described him as a man in his early 20s who appeared to have been shot twice, and had marks and swelling on his face consistent with a physical fight.
Another witness said he heard multiple shots just after 5:30 p.m. and ran outside his home.
"Four, five, six gunshots go, 'bam, bam, bam, bam, bam.' And then, there were three little kids who ran by my house and yelled 'sir, sir, somebody got shot, somebody got shot,' and you could tell they were pretty shook up," he said.
He said he saw a man running away from the victim down Davie Street.
"Tall black guy, skinny, blue shirt, jeans. But very fast," he said.
As of Sunday night, Raleigh Police had yet to make any arrests in the case, though a second crime scene was active on the 300 block of Blount Street earlier in the evening. Police said both crime scenes were tied to the Chavis Way shooting, but declined to say why.
Greg Howard lives on Chavis Way just feet from where the shots rang out. He said he's heard gunfire before, but never so close.
"Yeah, I mean it's not like I've never heard gunshots around here before, but to have it be that close is pretty remarkable," Howard said.
He said the fact it took place in broad daylight is particularly unsettling.
"That's always very, very late at night. And yeah, I would never imagine it happening during the day. I don't know what to make of it, honestly," Howard said.
The victim's condition is unknown.
According to the Raleigh Police Department, the incident was isolated.
