Several people have been injured in Raleigh, North Carolina, in what authorities are calling an “active shooting.”
A high-level city official told NBC affiliate WRAL of Raleigh that an off-duty officer was killed Thursday, and at least three people were taken to a hospital after the incident in the east Raleigh neighborhood.
Shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday, the Raleigh Police Department said that officers were responding to the scene of an “active shooting” in an area northeast of downtown. The department advised residents in the area to remain indoors.
Aerial video from WRAL showed a large police presence in the area.
A spokeswoman for WakeMed Health and Hospitals, which operates multiple medical facilities around the city, said three trauma patients were taken to a hospital.
