A suspected gunman was taken into custody after five people were fatally shot Thursday night on what North Carolina authorities called a “sad and tragic day.”

Among the fatalities was an off-duty police officer, Raleigh Mayor Mary-Anne Baldwin said.

She told reporters that authorities had detained the suspect in a residence northeast of downtown Raleigh, and soon after, police announced that the shooting suspect was in custody.

Lt. Jason Borneo of the Raleigh Police Department declined to provide additional details, as the investigation is “evolving.”

Two people were also injured in the shooting, Baldwin said. A K9 officer who had what Baldwin believed were non-life-threatening injuries was among them.

The victim’s condition was not immediately known.

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 stay indoors.

Aerial video of WRAL showed a large police presence in the area.

A witness told the station that he saw an apparent gunman armed with a long rifle and dressed in camouflage.

“I actually saw him walking past my house in the backyard,” the witness, identified only as Robert, told the station.

Another witness who saw the alleged gunman told the station he was wearing black boots and appeared to be a teenager.

“He looked like a baby,” she told WRAL.

State law enforcement officers assisted in the response, Governor Roy Cooper said. The Wake County Sheriff’s Office also responded, the agency said.

This is a story in development. Come back for updates.
