Police are investigating a series of shootings and a related wreck in North Raleigh that killed two people and wounded two others in less than 24 hours.
Investigators Saturday afternoon had not released the name or medical condition of the man found shot in the wrecked vehicle. A police spokeswoman reported that the man had gunshot wounds.
The first shooting early Friday night killed a 31-year-old man. The two other shootings happened early Saturday morning about two miles and about 15 minutes apart. A 22-year-old woman died as a result of the gunfire, and late Saturday police said a suspect had been arrested. Investigators have not said whether the incidents are related.
Shortly before 4:30 a.m. Saturday, Raleigh police were alerted about a shooting at the Mambo 69 Sports bar at 2221 New Hope Church Road. Investigators arrived at the bar and found two victims in the parking lot. Emergency workers transported Felipe Nerve Gonzalez Arrellano and Diana Medelin Ibarra-Luna, both 22, to WakeMed.

Arrellano was treated and released. Ibarra-Luna was pronounced dead, police spokeswoman Laura Hourigan reported.
Jonathan Roman, 19, has been charged with murder and assault with a deadly weapon. He was being held Saturday at the Wake County Detention Center.
Minutes later, at 4:45 a.m. police rushed to reports of a shooting on Capital Boulevard, near the Beltline, Hourigan reported.
The officers found a vehicle that had veered off the road and struck a utility pole. Inside the vehicle they found a man who had gunshot wounds. Emergency workers rushed the man to WakeMed.
Police closed a section of the highway after the collision resulted in downed power lines. Police by daybreak had reopened northbound lanes of Capital, but the southbound lanes remained closed.
The day before, at just before 5 p.m., police arrived at a fatal shooting in the 4600 block of Capital Boulevard.
Paramedics rushed the victim, Rahim Cummings, 31, to WakeMed, where he was pronounced dead, Hourigan reported.
