A man found fatally shot in a car near a Raleigh apartment complex parking lot early Sunday was identified Monday by police as Ricky Jay Wright.
Wright, 54, was found after police got a 4:15 a.m. call about shots fired around 1800 Cantwell Court, west of North Raleigh Boulevard, police said Sunday.
A woman called 911 after she was started awake by three gunshots, according to a copy of a 911 recording made public Monday afternoon.
Police said Monday they did not have a permanent address for Wright, but had been able to notify relatives before they gave out his name. They said he lived in Raleigh.
