This is one of the lowest of lows. Raleigh police are investigating a robbery at the Lightner Funeral Home and a home invasion at an apartment above the funeral home.
The owner of the business, Bruce Lightner, said two suspects ransacked his apartment, including his son’s room. The assailants put a gun to his head, then duct taped his hands and mouth before fleeing with some cash, food, and his cell phone.
Lightner was not injured during the incident, but was emotionally shaken and is having a security system installed and doors replaced. Police have not released any further details surrounding the incident.
