No information was released as to a possible motive for the shooting or what evidence linked the two men to the crime.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Boyce or James is asked to call Durham police Investigator J. Mitchell at 919-560-4440, extension 29335, or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.
