— Durham police are investigating a shooting that left a teen critically wounded late Tuesday on Holloway Street.

Officers were dispatched to a parking lot near the intersection of Holloway Street and Briggs Avenue at about 11:01 p.m. When they arrived, they found a 16-year-old male who had been shot. He was taken to Duke University Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition on Wednesday.

The assailant was described as a black male with a light complexion. He stands about 6 feet and has short hair. He was last seen wearing a dark jacket with no hood and blue jeans, and fled the scene in a newer model black Dodge Durango with factory wheels.
