‘Active shooting’ injures many in North Carolina

Several people were injured Thursday in what officials described as an “active shooting” in a neighborhood in Raleigh, North Carolina.

“State and local authorities are working to arrest the killer and keep the people safe,” Governor Roy Cooper tweeted.

The Raleigh Police Department said it was “at the scene of an active shooting” in a Twitter statement and advised many area residents to stay home. A police spokesperson did not immediately respond to a message asking for comment.

Hospital spokeswoman Deb Lagheri said at least three people linked to the shooting were treated at Raleigh’s Wakemead Hospital Thursday night, but no further information was immediately available.

WRAL-TV reported that multiple police cars and an ambulance responded to the scene northeast of downtown Raleigh.
