— Police have charged a second man in connection with a shooting that they said happened during an attempted robbery of money and drugs on a street of townhomes in the Hedingham community in North Raleigh last week.

Aaron Mitchell, 20, of 3978 Patriot Ridge Court in Raleigh was arrested Monday afternoon at the corner of Wallingford Drive and North New Hope Church Road, according to an arrest report.

Police charged him with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and felony conspiracy.

In the incident early March 27, Michael Bocock was shot in the leg with an AK-47 rifle fired by Kyle Stephen Anderson, according to a warrant on which police arrested Anderson the following day.

The warrant said the shooting happened during an attempt to steal money and drugs.

A second man, Riley Knapp, was wounded in the hand by a bullet that went into a car, officers wrote.

Mitchell was named as a conspirator in the warrant for Anderson, and both were named as conspirators with an unknown third person.

Police spokesman Jim Sughrue said the investigation is continuing.

Mitchell was being held Wednesday on $50,000 bail and was scheduled for another court appearance later this month.
