The local police reported that three armed men entered the property and stole wallets, cash, and electronic items before leaving.

Nobody was injured during the robbery.

A 911 call made by one of the victim's was released by police shortly after they reported the incident.

The group were also instructed to count to 100 before getting up off the ground. Since the robbery news broke, McCreery has released a statement via his Facebook page.

"About last night's robbery," the country music singer's statement began. "Yes, it was definitely a very scary night. Luckily, my friends and I are safe and the Raleigh PD is on the case."

"I will share more when the time is right, but as of now we do not want to do or say anything that could hinder the investigation," he continued. "Thanks to everyone for the prayers and support. A huge thank you to the Raleigh PD for their quick response and hard work in solving this case."
