Durham County News

DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) – A man was shot twice in a possible drive-by in the middle of the day Wednesday, Durham police said.

Just after 3:20 p.m., officers responded to Berwyn Avenue, which is north of Interstate 85.

They arrived to find a man who had been shot twice in the leg. His wounds were described as non-life-threatening, police said.

According to a captain on scene, the shooting is being investigated as a possible drive-by.

No information was available on a possible suspect.

The neighborhood was also the scene of another drive-by on May 29. In that case, a mother driving with three children in her car was shot four times. She ended up crashing the car into a home along Berwyn Avenue and taken to the hospital where she was treated for her injuries.

“A couple of people were shooting at each other in cars and stuff, and one person got caught in the cross fire and got shot. Ended up in the yard three houses down,” resident Roderick Cates recalled Wednesday from the May shooting.
