Raleigh Police identify woman and man killed in separate weekend shootings

Raleigh police on Monday identified two people killed in weekend shootings.

A woman fatally shot on Bragg Street Friday night is identified as 24-year-old Kimberly Irene Holder, according to a news release.

Two others who were shot, Jean Onivogui, 31, and Roy Chester Hyman, 55, were taken to WakeMed with non-life-threatening injuries, the release said.

Holder had three children, ages 2, 3, and 10, and had recently returned to school, her older brother Jamar Waverly told ABC11, The News & Observer’s media partner.

“She was a great person in the community, and it’s a sad situation,” Duran Copeland, a minister and friend of the family, told the station.

No one has been arrested in the incident, which happened around 9 p.m. on the 500 block of Bragg Street.

The incident was one of two fatal shootings in Raleigh on Friday night and one of three homicides in three days.

Police also responded to a shooting call on the 1700 block of Trawick Road about 8:03 p.m. Friday, where they found a man’s body.

Carlton Craig Harris, 29, and Drew Dominique Smith, 29, were arrested and charged with murder in the death of 31-year-old Antonio O’Neal Early.

In a third homicide, a man was dropped off at a Raleigh hospital early Sunday morning with fatal gunshot wounds after a shooting was reported on the 900 block of Beverly Drive, police say.

He was identified Monday as 28-year-old Devonte Jamal Tillery.
