Early Morning Robbery Goes Awry

posted on June 20, 2015

Police were called to the scene of an attempted robbery in Hope Mills, N.C., on Thursday, where three armed men attempted to rob a resident. With guns pointed at him and the robbers demanding money, the would-be victim was able to pull a gun from his vehicle and began shooting. The robbers returned fire before fleeing.

The victim hit one of the suspects, Gerald Douglas Raeford, who was later pronounced dead at the scene. The other two suspects fled on foot and are still at large; police consider them to be armed and dangerous. The victim, who also sustained a gunshot wound, was being treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.
