After a drive-by shooting on U.S. 70 near East End Avenue left a driver wounded early Saturday morning, Durham police investigators are asking for the public’s help to find the gunman.
The victim was driving east on U.S. 70 in the left lane about 3:50 a.m. when a car drove up behind him and started passing on the right side.
Investigators say that as the suspect’s car drove past the victim’s vehicle, a person inside fired shots.
The victim was shot multiple times and was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
According to a witness, the gunman was in a green car and the shots were fired from the driver’s side.
There did not appear to be a confrontation before the shooting, and investigators have not determined a motive.
Police ask anyone with information to call Investigator M. Feskanich at (919) 560-4281, ext. 29123, or CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests, and callers never have to identify themselves.
