    "Headline: "One injured after shooting in Durham"

    "DUH!!! Doesn't a person normally get "injured" after being shot?"

    uh, no santa. it doesn't say "one injured after being shot". it says "one injured after shooting". There are shooting all the time where no one is hit and no one is injured.

    Reading compreshenion, it's good.

    Because Duke is the Trauma Center and where all designated potential life threatening victims go. If the subject didn't need IMMEDIATE life saving interventions above what EMS could do then you take them to the trauma center. Chances are great that DRH would have called to had him transported to Duke anyways.

    I don't believe Durham Regional has a trauma center.

    Isnt this by Durham Regional? Why did they take him all the way to Duke?

    P-S, please be kind. Not all fired shots hit someone, and sometimes shootings are fatal. There's nothing wrong with this headline.
