DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — A man was seriously injured by gunfire when at least five shots were fired in northern Durham on Monday afternoon.
The incident happened just after 1:30 p.m. in the 900 block of Chalk Level Road, according to Wil Glenn, Durham Police spokesman.
The man was taken to a nearby hospital after suffering life-threatening injuries after the shooting at Center Station Apartments.
A black Mercedes-Benz sedan was at the scene with what appeared to be a rear side window that was shattered by gunfire.
There were at least five other bullet holes in the back of the E-class sedan, including the trunk and rear window.
Neighbors were stunned by the shooting.
“Kind of devastated honestly. Cause it’s right there by the entrance and that’s a public bus stop for kids and it was around the time kids were coming home from school. So I mean its kind, it shook me a little bit,” said Courtney Ratliff.
“A follow-up investigation is underway and additional information will be provided,” Glenn said in a news release.
