Suspect sought in Chapel Hill shooting

From staff reportsJanuary 25, 2014 

— A man was shot multiple times Friday evening in a parking lot at 342 W. Rosemary St., police reported.

The man, whose name was not immediately released, was taken to UNC Hospitals, police spokesman Lt. Kevin Gunter said. The man is not a UNC student, Gunter said.

"At this point, I'm not sure whether the victim's injuries are life-threatening or not," he said late Friday.

On Saturday afternoon, police said they have obtained an arrest warrant charging Dennis Junious Clark, 23, with attempted first-degree murder. They are looking for him.

Police were dispatched around 6:30 p.m. to a report of shots fired in the parking lot beside Tate Realty and Construction Co. and Legacy Cuts hair salon.

The male suspect reportedly fled in a white sedan, Gunter said.

Police investigators worked into the night collecting evidence, including several items near a black Honda Accord parked in front of the salon. Police later towed the car.

The investigation is continuing, Gunter said.
