“The Durham Police Department is always concerned about any acts of violence that occur in our city, and investigates such incidents with haste. Based on initial investigative findings, the fatal shootings that occurred last night appear to be isolated, and do not appear to be random acts.
These were two separate cases, one spawning from a domestic disturbance between a man and woman known to each other; and, the second incident which occurred on House Avenue, we are still working to determine the motive for this incident which appears to be targeted based on preliminary information.
We ask that anyone with information about either of these separate cases call us or CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200. “
