RPD Makes Arrest in Overnight Homicide

Shortly after 11 p.m. last night, Raleigh Police Department officers responded to a robbery call at 4809 Sweetbriar Drive.

Upon arrival, the officers discovered one subject deceased at the scene. That subject was later identified as Brandon Dwain Shelton, 28. A second subject, who had a gunshot wound in his right arm, was located nearby a short time later. The wounded subject was later identified as Brian Matthew Onley, 23. He was transported to WakeMed for treatment.

Subsequent investigation of the case indicates that Shelton and Onley entered the residence armed and wearing masks and attempted to rob individuals who were engaged in a poker game at the address. A struggle ensued, and the two suspects were shot.

Onley will be formally charged in connection with the incident when he is released from the hospital. No other individuals have been charged at this time, pending further investigation.
