Mother, son still in serious condition after shooting
Posted January 6
Durham, N.C. — A mother and her 9-year-old son remained in serious condition Monday after they were shot while in a vehicle on Saturday.
Durham police responded to a shooting call on Lucas Drive at around 6 p.m. The 31-year-old woman and her son were found sitting in a vehicle on Halyard Court about a half-mile away.
Both were taken to a local hospital with serious injuries, police said.
It was unclear whether the shooting happened at a home or in the street, but a man who identified himself only as a close family friend said the two were shot inside a car at a home on Lucas Drive and that the woman then drove to Halyard Court.
Several residents who live on Lucas Drive said they heard at least six gunshots.
Police, however, would not comment further on the investigation, including a possible motive, and they did not release any suspect information Sunday evening.
The victims' names have not been released.
