The 15-year-old suspect is in a critical condition in hospital, but it is not clear how he was injured.

The Gun Violence Archive says there have been 533 mass shootings (four or more shot) in the US this year.

Thursday’s attack unfolded in a residential neighbourhood near the Neuse River Greenway, a popular trail on the outskirts of the state capital.

The unnamed suspect’s motive is yet to be established, said police. He is white, and the victims were all of different races.

After shooting a relative at home, the boy went out into the street and shot two women in the neighbourhood, Raleigh Police Chief Estella Patterson said on Friday morning.
