A shooting that occurred early Sunday morning in Raleigh has made its way into the national news this week. As CNN reports, Chad Copley has been charged with fatally shooting Kouren-Rodney Bernard Thomas after calling 911 to report that “a bunch of hoodlums” were in front of his house. Copley then told the dispatcher that he was on neighborhood watch, was “locked and loaded,” and was “going to secure [his] neighborhood.” Shortly thereafter, a different person called 911 to report a shooting. The News & Observer reports that investigators allege that Copley fired a shotgun from inside his garage and hit Bernard who was outside. The case is drawing comparisons to the incident where Trayvon Martin was shot by George Zimmerman. Keep reading for more news.
