— Police have arrested one man an charged him with shooting two others outside Bodi nightclub on South West Street in Raleigh early Friday.

Hany Mousa Shehadeh, 35, of Rocky Mount was struck in the face, and Keshon Oneil Johnson, 23, of Charlotte, in the wrist, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.

Neither man was believed to have life-threatening injuries, police reported. Both were taken to WakeMed in Raleigh for treatment.

Michael Adolphe Cadet, 29, of Raleigh, is booked on a variety of charges, including assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and inflicting serious injury, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and discharging a weapon into occupied property.

“We think we have a good understanding of what happened,” Capt. Randy Munn said.

The men were shot outside Bodi nightclub at 310 S. West St. about 3:15 a.m.

A woman phoned 911 to report that she needed an officer “because somebody’s been shot.” The woman, whose name was not released, started sobbing before asking the dispatcher to “hurry up. Please hurry up.”

The caller explained that the victim, apparently Shehadeh, had been shot while sitting in a car parked outside the club.

Someone managed to get Shehadeh out of the car and into a Range Rover that drove him to a hospital.

“Both victims were transported to the hospital in private vehicles,” Sughrue said.

Investigators searched a black Camaro parked outside the nightclub, but Sughrue said he did not know whether or how it was connected to the shootings.

Bodi sits on a short, dead-end block of South West Street south of West Martin Street near the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks.

The club’s Facebook page said a bus would be available Thursday night to bring students from St. Augustine’s and Shaw universities and said there would be no cover charge to get in.

The evening was billed as the “Back to School Extravaganza,” with a posting that said, “2night it’s the back to school bash! Ladies night out. Everyone FREE all night, groups of 4 will receive a bottle of champagne.”

Cadet was being held at the Wake County Detention Center Friday night.
