2 charged in early morning Oakwood shooting, sexual assault

RALEIGH, N.C. -

Police have arrested and charged two men in connection with a robbery, shooting and sexual assault in Raleigh's Oakwood neighborhood.

Jahaad Tariem Allah Marshall, 26, and Shabar Master Marshall, 16, were arrested Monday after being seen fleeing the scene of a robbery, shooting and sexual assault around 3:30 a.m.

Authorities say a female victim escaped the suspects and ran to a neighbor's house, where police were called to the scene of the shooting. Police identified a 34-year-old man as the shooting victim.

"We were sleeping and we heard this blood curdling scream. The woman that was assaulted came to our house, banged on the door and we let her in. We called the police at that point," recalled neighbor Terry Iverson.

Because of the nature of the crimes, WNCN is withholding the names and address of the victims.

A short time after the shooting, officers tried to stop a vehicle that they believed was connected to the robbery. The vehicle fled  the scene. A suspect threw a weapon from the car during the pursuit.

Police later found the weapon, a Raven .25 caliber pistol, which is identical to a weapon stolen during a home invasion on Dec. 30.

The suspects then crashed at the intersection of Wilmington and Rush Streets.

After the occupants of the vehicles attempted to run from the crash site, police were able to detain them a short time later.

Jahaad Marshall is charged with one count of first-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of attempted murder, one count of attempted first-degree rape and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Shabar Marshall is charged with one count of first-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of attempted murder and one count of first-degree forcible sex offense.

At this point police are uncertain if there were any other occupants in the vehicle that crashed.

Iverson, who has lived in Historic Oakwood for seven years and owns several homes in the neighborhood, says Monday's shooting and burglary is unusual for the area.

"Very big surprise; we don't expect these things to happen here," Iverson said.

"I was very surprised. It is very unusual. It's a nice area of town -- well-knit community," said area resident Devin DiMattia.

Randy Scott is renovating a home in the neighborhood and says Monday's incident highlights the importance of installing security cameras and a security system before his family moves in.

"Anytime it happens anywhere it is tragic, but when it happens in your own neighborhood it hits close to home," Scott said.

According to Wake Med, the shooting victim is listed in serious condition.

Shabar Marshall is due in court Tuesday.
