Vigil held to remember slain Durham man

DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — More than a dozen people gathered Saturday afternoon to remember Nick Bell.

His mother, siblings and local religious leaders reflecting on Bell and the talented, loving young man he was.

It’s been more than a month since Nick Bell was found shot to death. Authorities said his body was found behind a house on the 2800 block of Ashe Street. It was the first homicide of 2016.

Family and friends told us Bell was an athlete and musician. That he was living on Ashe Street with some friends.

Police have arrested three men in connection with his homicide. But today wasn’t about that, the focus on Bell.

“I miss Nick jumping down my stairs and I’m looking back and saying Nick don’t do that. You’re going to hurt yourself. I miss that! I miss Nick calling me on the phone and saying mom I need a couple dollars. You know, I miss it. I really do,” Edna Bell, Bell’s mother said.

This vigil part of a larger effort to stop the violence in Durham.
