DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — Durham police are investigating a deadly broad-daylight shooting that happened Monday afternoon, officials say.

The incident happened around 5:15 p.m. on South Elm Street near Angier Avenue, according to Durham police.

Neighbors told CBS 17 that the man who was killed lived along the street and was walking home from a nearby store when someone shot him. 

Police later identified the victim as 38-year-old Thaddeus Darnell Holloway of Durham. 

Others who live near the scene say they only heard one shot fired. Another neighbor said the victim “never bothered anyone.”

Neighbors on South Elm Street, say crime scene tape and police lights are a familiar site.

One mom said she doesn’t let her children play outside anymore because of gun violence.

A memorial stands on the one Elm Street, near where Latonya Morris was gunned down in 2016.

“It was just senseless. It’s just senseless. It doesn’t make any sense to me that people pull up and just shoot people down like that. Then at the same time, it’s right in front of somebody, all these kids in the neighborhood,” said one man who asked not to be identified.

The man says his nephew, J’Corey Bailey, was shot and killed on Ashe Street on April 25, 2016, — less than a mile and a half from Monday’s shooting.

“It’s very frustrating, very, very. It just hurts every time I see senseless cases like this. It just hurts so bad,” he said.

The man said he feels for the family who lost a loved one Monday afternoon.

“I don’t know the family, but I say once I find out who it is, I’m going try to do the best I can to tell them I’ll be there for them, offer condolences. I really know what it’s like. It really hurts,” he said.

Arrests were made in both J’Corey Bailey, and Laytona Morris’ cases.

No information was immediately available about a possible suspect in Monday’s shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator M. Evans at (919) 560-4440, ext. 29336 or CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200.
