Investigators said a fight broke out in front of Club Marvell on West Main Street about 2:30 a.m. During the argument, someone shot Sharrod McNair, 20, in the chest.
McNair later died at Duke Hospital. Investigators said they believe McNair knew his killer.
About 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon, several people were sitting on a porch in the 1900 block of Hart Street when a white Oldsmobile drove past the house, said Durham police spokeswoman Kammie Michael. The occupants of the vehicle fired several shots, Michael said.
A 22-year-old man was shot in both legs, and a 31-year-old man was shot in the left elbow. Both men were taken to Duke Hospital for treatment of their injuries, which were not thought to be life-threatening.
No charges have been filed in either shooting. Anyone with information in relation to the incidents is asked to call Durham CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200.
