— Durham authorities are seeking new leads about a vehicle fleeing the scene of a fatal shooting last month.

Kareem Fowler, 33, was shot outside a house in the 900 block of Dupree Street shortly after midnight on April 17.

Police are trying to identify three people who fled the scene in a white Chrysler Pacifica that might also have been in the same area during the day on April 16.

Investigators believe that someone also might have seen the Pacifica around the North Carolina Central University campus.

One person is believed to be a black man in his late teens to mid-20s with a light complexion, small to medium build and standing about 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches. Police said he had a small Afro and was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.

The two other men were approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall and 6 feet 1 inch tall with large builds. Both were wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information is asked to call Durham police at 919-560-4440, extension 29332, or Durham Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.

Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.
