RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Raleigh police are investigating a homicide that occurred early Sunday morning that also prompted police to close off a portion of Interstate-440.
Police were dispatched to a shooting call around 4 a.m. at the intersection of Hillsborough Street and Glenwood Avenue.
When they arrived they discovered a male victim had been shot. The victim, Arlo Dontel Ramsey, 44, of Durham, was transported to WakeMed where he later died.
As the investigation progressed, police were able to determine that Ramsey was not shot on Hillsborough Street.
Police later said Sunday afternoon that Ramsey was shot along I-440 westbound between New Bern Avenue and Brentwood Road.
A tip about the shooting location prompted police to close off a portion of I-440 westbound between New Bern Avenue and Brentwood Road, and an area near the Tower Shopping Center, as they looked for evidence.
Police have not released what they were searching for, or if any evidence was discovered.
Both locations were reopened a short time later.
