Unarmed Black Man Shot 7 Times By Police In Raleigh NC





Police are on the scene of an officer-involved shooting at Bragg Street and S. East Street in southeast Raleigh. Pictures from Chopper 11 showed it happened near a business called PJ's Grill and Groceries around 12 pm Monday.

A woman on the scene, claiming to be the victims mother told ABC11 that officers shot her son. "He was running away," said Rolanda Byrd. "They couldn't catch him so they shot at him seven times."

"Whoever is back there is dead, they (police) told me whoever is back there is dead," Byrd added.

As word of the shooting spread, a small group of demonstrators arrived at the scene and started chanting "Black lives matter."

More Police from neighboring counties were called in to avoid a potential riot outbreak.
