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.
Never miss a local story.
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.
