DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — A North Carolina Central University football player was shot in the back in Durham on Sunday evening, police said.
The shooting happened around 6:15 p.m. outside a home in the 400 block of Formosa Avenue, Durham police said.
George McGue, 22, was shot in the back during the incident.
Police said they are looking for two suspects who possibly drove away from the scene in a dark-colored Honda.
Formosa Avenue is off Fayetteville Street, which is a boundary of the N.C. Central University campus.
McGue was transported to an area hospital, but his condition is not known.
McGue, a Florida native, is listed as a defensive lineman for the Eagles. The redshirt junior played in six games in 2016.
NCCU students in a nearby dorm heard the gunfire.
“I was in the room … and I just heard one shot, one loud shot and then a car drive off,” said Nasir Rahman, a senior.
“This is one of the first times it’s been this close, normally it’s in the surrounding neighborhood behind here and around but it’s never been this close,” Rahman added.
