Durham, N.C. — Police on Tuesday issued warrants for the arrest of a Durham man in connection with a drive-by shooting Monday that left one man dead and a second man wounded.
The warrants charge Dante Lamar Terrell, 21, of Crest Street, with murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

Two men were walking on the 2800 block of Crest Street Monday afternoon when multiple shots were fired from a passing car, police said.

A witness told WRAL News that a child getting off a school bus in the neighborhood found a handgun about three blocks from the shooting scene.
Police were awaiting tests results on the gun to confirm whether it was used in the shooting. Investigators have declined to comment on a possible motive.
