Man, 69, found shot at house just outside Raleigh, sheriff’s office says

A 69-year-old man was found shot Tuesday night at a house just north of Spring Forest Road, the Wake County Sheriff's Office said.

The sheriff’s office did not say in a statement Wednesday if they had determined whether a crime was involved. The man’s wounds were not believed to be life-threatening, and he was taken to WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh for treatment, official said.

The man was at 5701 Paul Road in a subdivision near Louisburg Road that is surrounded by Raleigh but is outside the city.

Deputies went to the one-story house after getting a call about 8 p.m. that there had been a shooting, the statement said.

The man’s name was not disclosed.
