Raleigh shooting 911 call: 'I shot my friend'

RALEIGH, N.C. -

In a 911 call released Wednesday from a Raleigh shooting Tuesday night, a frantic caller admits to shooting a friend.

Raleigh police responded to a call in the 2100 block of Groundwater Place just after 7 p.m. Upon arrival, officers located an adult male who was deceased from an apparent gunshot wound.

The man has been identified as 21-year-old Bryan Keith Gill Jr.

In a 911 call released by police Wednesday, the caller says, "I shot my friends on accident, Oh my God, Oh my God."

Police have charged Alexander Leon Walton, 20, with involuntary manslaughter in connection with Gill's death. Walton has also been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The victim and the suspect were known to one another.

A search warrant said two firearms were found in plain view at the residence on the second floor.

The 911 call also revealed that there was an attempt to try and save Gill Jr.

"Someone did CPR and it didn't work," the caller tells the 911 operator.

Walton has been transported to the Wake County Detention Center.

The investigation of the incident remains ongoing.
