Man Grazed By Bullet During Durham Church Service

Posted January 1, 2003

— Durham police are investigating a New Year's Eve incident in which a man attending a church service was grazed by a bullet.

According to police, 73-year-old Charles Enlone was inside Fellowship Baptist Church, off of Highway 70, at 11:30 Tuesday night. During the service, people inside the church heard gunshots.

Enlone stood up and headed to the back of the sanctuary to investigate when his niece, who was sitting behind him, held up a bullet that grazed his elbow and landed in her hand. The bullet didn't even break the skin.

Investigators who were called to the scene said they don't think the church was the target of any shooting. They said they heard complaints about shots fired in a nearby neighborhood and are investigating that.
