DURHAM — Several people have been arrested after a report of shots fired outside Northgate Mall in Durham on Thursday afternoon.
A sheriffs deputy working off-duty at the mall heard a disturbance in the parking lot just before 4 p.m. The deputy exited the mall, saw a man fire shots and chased the suspect down on foot, according to Kammie Michael, a Durham police spokeswoman.
The deputy arrested the fleeing suspect, and authorities arrested two more people on the scene on outstanding warrants. No one was shot and one vehicle was damaged during the affray, according to Michael.
Authorities charged Devonte Keith, 20, of Glenbrook Drive, with possession of a stolen firearm, discharging a firearm within the city limits, carrying a concealed weapon, going armed to the terror of the public and resisting, delaying and obstructing an officer.
Two other men Alvis Gentry, 19, and Gerald Melvin, 27 were arrested on outstanding warrants.
Investigators are still looking for a silver sedan that left the area.
