Durham police are investigating a shooting that happened late Monday morning at an apartment complex on Bedford Street. One man was critically injured and a woman has been arrested.
Officers responded to the call shortly after 11:15 a.m. today in the 2000 block of Bedford Street. When they arrived, they found a man who had been shot in the abdomen inside an apartment. The man, whose name is not being released at this time, was taken to the hospital for treatment of critical injuries.
A woman – Lavondra Parker, 22, of Durham – turned herself in a short time later. She has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, assault with a deadly weapon with a minor present and discharging a firearm within the city limits. She has been placed in Durham County Jail without bond.
This appears to have been a domestic incident, according to investigators.
