RALEIGH, N.C. -- A 14-year-old boy was killed in an apparent drive-by shooting in Raleigh overnight.

Raleigh police responded to the 900 block of Sawpit Drive around 11:40 p.m. for a report of shots fired into a building.

They didn't find any victims or witnesses, but when officers circulated the area, they found 14-year-old Jamahri Lucas suffering from a gunshot wound.



He was taken to WakeMed where he was pronounced dead.

The boy's father spoke to ABC11 on Friday. He said he was worried about his son prior to the shooting because he had gotten mixed up in the wrong crowd.
