3 Shot In Convenience Store Parking Lot

Posted March 1, 2007

— Durham police are investigating a shooting that occurred Thursday night in the parking lot of a convenience store on Angier Avenue.

Officers responded to a call at the Buy Quick at the intersection of Angier and Briggs avenues at about 7:21 p.m.

When they arrived, they found three men who had been shot. All three were taken to a local hospital. Their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, police said.

Investigators think the shots were fired by someone standing behind a chain-link fence near the store. Police do not have a description of a suspect and investigators are still trying to determine a motive.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200.

    More blacks are in jail because more blacks than whites are victims. Check the stats. Violent crime rarely crosses racial lines.

    say-no-crackhead what in the blue hell are you talking about?? rainy is right , what you commented about was way out of line. yea there are lots of blacks in durham but your comments was directed towards hard working blacks who try to make a difference. so what there are more blacks in jail than whites who cares. it still dont give you the right to attack honest blacks out there. and i agree with rainy, you sound more like a kkk hiding behind a computer and a hood.

    tell you what rainy. go hang out in the jail. see what the majority race is. i'm sick of opression. i've been robbed. i've been turned down for jobs. i've been turned down for medical care. why? because i work for a living. i beleive in the death penalty. i beleive in the 10 commandments. i beleive in the right to practice your own religion. i do however, beleive that our constitution needs to change. it's over 200 years old. it's out dated and it gives liberals and special interest groups room to protest for "rights". the heck with that. you kill someone, you're put to death. you rape, you're castrated. you sell drugs, you get a labotomy. simple. you get hummers while in the oval office, you get impeached. you steal, you work free for years to pay it back...while in jail. so there. i just solved the whole damn thing and didn't even kill an innocent animal to do it!

    shooting? in Durham? really? hmmm.

    I agree. I live in Durham, towards Roxboro and it's the nicest place I've ever lived in. They did a report on North Carolina a few months ago, and the crime rate in Raleigh is higher than the crime rate in Durham. That must tell you something right there. Just being rediculous if you assume that one specific place is bad, and not the entire country. Try moving up north. They don't care who you are. If you stare at them, they'll slit your throat and keep walking. At least it isn't that bad here.

    You can all believe one thing...it is not just Durham nor is it just North Carolina. The crime rate is booming all over. In reading the world news from time to time...I just thank GOD above that I live in the United States.

    If people took as much time as they did judging to learn and see they wouldn't nake such narrow minded, segregationalist comments as they do. To think that Durham's crime is b/c of the large amoutn of blacks is by far the funniest thing I have heard yet! Durham has the most black owned buisness and has a booming economy mainly due to black money.
    I really don't know what to say to this person who has perplexed me so much today but to say I feel for you. I didn't realize Durham was falling down due to it's crime rate. So I guess so is every other major city in America. Wow...I am really speechless.
