— Two men found injured in the parking lot of a Durham convenience store Wednesday shot each other, according to a preliminary investigation by police.

Christopher Derrick Judd, 22, of Durham, and Daniel Terrell Lucas, 25, of Raleigh, were found outside the Lighthouse Food Mart, at 2944 Holloway St., around 5 p.m.

Police said that both men suffered serious injuries and were taken to Duke University Hospital. Five days later, Judd died. 

No charges had been filed as of Monday morning. Police said the investigation was ongoing.

Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to call Durham Police at 919-560-4440 or 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.

    All great cities have crime problems.

    Chicago, New York, New Orleans, Los Angeles, DC etc.

    Might as well embrace the reputation.

    But honestly, for those who have not been to downtown Durham in a while it is really nice.

    LOL Thanks whess, I'd much rather spread a chuckle than spread the dread.

    I'm wondering if these guys stood back to back, took 20 paces and then turned around and fired?

    I love the stories about Durham because everyone piles on.

    Whatever, I love Durham and it's a great city.

    meBNme is funny though. I feel like I'm code orange, bordering on red. That gave a chuckle.

    meBNme, I'm sure you do know some great people in Trailers, I know some good people in the projects. Things have happened that have landed them there, maybe only for the short time, or maybe longer than expected, but they are still morally sound & law abiding. Living in a project doesn't make you ghetto or a criminal,so I understand what you're saying. I know people who live in 500 & 750k homes who believe those who live in 150 and 200 are of no quality, so it's all about how you see things & do you give a person or a people a chance & don't prejudge them, before you ever say hello. Really,I've seen some gorgeous Double wides, Modular, whatever you want to call them,& would feel no less than you in your 250k.

    Jesmyopinion, have U taken the time 2 read the articles I posted now or ever in the past,that show U what also goes on in Ralgh.U R so busy ridiculing Durham, being a follower, you won't or don't take the time to see what is happening in your backyard,or maybe even front door.

    gmuny33, I'm not bashing. I pointed out that all cities are that way, thats why I like the country of JoCo, and that IMO based on personal experience, Durhams bad areas, are more severe than Raleighs bad area's and that while in them, You'd better be even more prepared and aware.

    In Raleigh, there are a very few small area's I feel like I must be in condition orange, bordering on red.

    In Durham, there are more and larger areas, where I feel I must because the atmosphere for violence and crime is escelated.

    Of course it exists in all moderate to large cities.
    I'd still choose Raleigh over Durham, but would rather leave em both to rot and stay out where the citizens are better armed than the criminals.

    Now.... I dont live in a trailer, thank God.
    But I do know several folks who do, that are some of the most upstnading and respectable citizens you'll ever meet.

    living in a trailer does not make one trailer trash.
    I know a few school teachers and cops, a few very good parents and honorable people, who live in singlewides 25 years old.

    They just decided not to, or couldnt afford, to spend 250 grand on a home, when they could have one for 25 grand.
