— A man was injured in a Durham shooting Monday night, authorities said.

A man was sitting on a porch near Lathrop Street and Briggs Avenue when a man in a known vehicle approached him and shot at him around 8:50.

The man on the porch returned fire, and the bullet grazed the other man near his chest.

Durham authorities are investigating whether the man on the porch was acting in self-defense.
