    Its the "City of Medicine" because most of the residents have a gunshot wound or two.

    "doesn't shooting and durham just slide off the tounge so easily that they go together? Sort of like "u" following "q" they just go together so well." I know shocker right? A news story would there were no shootings in Durham today.

    maybe the driver WAS trying to call 911- while he was driving- thus the reason he ended up in someone's living room.

    They are teenagers...depending on the shooting circumstances, they may have been scared to death! I know I would have been.

    But since I say that, it will probably turn out to be some gangs or something that was NOT so innocent and a totally different story.

    snicker, this story is far from over, but I wonder if any "journalist" (term used loosely) will follow up and fill in the full story.

    I won't hold my breath.

    and if the driver is from durham...im sure the vehicle had no insurance...which will only hurt the homeowner

    @ Nancy, its probably a gang situation where they didn't want to snitch on the shooter, to avoid further injury
