A man was wounded by one of several gunshots Friday morning after what police said was a verbal argument that escalated outside a convenience store.
The man’s wound was not believed to be life-threatening, police said. He was taken to WakeMed Raleigh hospital for treatment.
Police were called to a Circle K convenience store at 3948 New Bern Ave., near Corporation Parkway, at 5:35 a.m., because shots had been fired there, they said.
They found the wounded man when they arrived.

Witnesses told them that several people who were involved fled in a silver-colored sedan.
Surveillance cameras yielded pictures of two women and three men who police said might know what happened, and investigators asked the five to call and for the public’s help in identifying them so police can talk to them.
They also said that anyone else who has information that they think could help police either call Raleigh CrimeStoppers at 919-834-HELP (4357) or visit the CrimeStoppers website to see how to help by text and email.
