— Two Raleigh brothers were charged Monday in an overnight home invasion, shooting, sexual assault, car chase and crash that began in a historic Raleigh neighborhood.

Jahaad Tariem Allah Marshall, 27, and Shabar Master Marshall, 16, are each charged with one felony count of first degree burglary, two felony counts of first degree kidnapping and one count of attempted murder.

In addition, Jahaad Marshall is charged with one count attempted rape and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon; Shabar Marshall is charged with one count of first-degree forcible sex offense, according to Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue.

Shortly after 3:15 a.m. Monday, the well-ordered tranquility in the historic Oakwood neighborhood was shattered when a shooting was reported at 500 block of East Lane Street.

Emergency workers transported one victim to WakeMed in Raleigh where he was treated for injuries not considered life-threatening, Sughrue said.

While the scene was being investigated, other officers saw a silver-colored sedan traveling at a high rate of speed on Raleigh Boulevard, Sughrue reported.

The driver refused when police attempted to pull him over, and a pursuit ensued until the car crashed at the intersection of Wilmington and Rush streets.

The occupants of the car tried to escape on foot, but were apprehended a short time later.

Jahaad Marshall was treated at WakeMed in Raleigh for injuries he suffered in the crash, then taken to the Wake County jail where Shabar Marshall was also being held, Sughrue said.
