Durham police seek two vehicles in fatal store shooting

Posted January 11, 2013

— Durham police are asking for the public's help in locating two vehicles seen in the area of a fatal shooting outside a convenience store late Wednesday evening.

Investigators said Friday that Lashaun Lamont Hunt, 18, of Lexington Street, was shot several times outside Town-N-Country, at 3101 University Drive, just before midnight.

Police are looking for a white or light-colored sport utility vehicle and a Nissan Altima of an unknown color. They provided no other details about the vehicles.

No charges have been filed in the case, and investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the shooting.

Anyone with information about the shooting should call the Durham Police Department at 919-560-4400, extension 29322, or Durham Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.

Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.

    You guys have 2 understand that the DPD only gives out the info that "THEY" wanna give out. & im sure they know by now that most of those kinda stores (which I call them "after club hours)are where ppl hang out like after 1-2am, so they know they should have security in places like that. Praying for the victims family tho. Hope they find their inner piece.

    They have got to be kidding right?

    Yes it actually does narrow it down, they provided the victim's name and because they probably don't think that this is a random act, someone who knows the victim might know someone with those vehicle descriptions.

    Well those vehicle descriptions are pretty vague..I think I could probably spot cars with those descriptions in every parking lot.

    "white or light-colored sport utility vehicle and a Nissan Altima of an unknown color."

    That narrows it right down...
