Police say someone shot at a glass door at an off-duty officer's apartment on Monday afternoon, then ran off into some nearby woods.
The officer was home when a shot shattered the outer pane of his dining room's sliding glass door shortly before 2 p.m., said police spokeswoman Kammie Michael. It's not clear if the gun was a pellet gun or a real one, but the projectile did not go into the apartment, Michael said.
The officer looked out the window in time to see a man running into the woods behind the Atrium Apartments off Meriwether Drive on the north side of Durham. Police did not have a good description of the man, except that he was black with a dark complexion and short hair and that he was wearing a dark green jacket, Michael said.
Police with dogs searched for the man but were not able to find him.
Police aren't sure if the man targeted the officer's apartment. They ask anyone with information to contact Investigator D. Mussatti at 919-560-4582, ext. 29238.
