Police: No one injured after drive-by shooting at Durham nightclub

— No one was injured in a shooting at a Durham nightclub on Sunday.

Officials said it was around 1:45 a.m. when a drive-by shooting took place at the Emerald City Ultra Bar and Lounge located at 2000 Chapel Hill Road near Jersey Avenue. According to officials, the shooting started as the car was leaving the parking lot.

An officer noticed the driver of a white BMW SUV shut off its lights at a nearby intersection. According to police, the driver sped off from the stoplight at a high speed and crashed into a white work van that was parked at Jackson Street and S. Buchanan Boulevard.

Two suspects jumped from the SUV, and, after a brief foot chase, one suspect was arrested. Two firearms were recovered.

Officials said no one was injured during the incident and the club was not damaged.

Police are unsure if the suspects were patrons of the club.

    Thank you James. It seems they have the obvious covered. A 1st grader would recognize the need for that law. I expect significantly more from them

    No respect for life. Nothing to live for. Shooting guns like they are toys. So what does the legislature work on? Sunday happy hour and voter id. People die daily and we find maybe 3 folks that voted illegally. Big big difference . Cowards in the building
