Shots wound three in vehicles on NC 55 in south Durham

Three men were wounded when someone, apparently in a car, fired into two vehicles in which the men were riding on N.C. 55 in south Durham late Monday, police said.

The incident was reported to police about 11:30 p.m., police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said.

The three had been driven to a hospital for treatment of what police said appeared to be non-life-threatening wounds.

Michael said the trio told police they had been driving south on N.C. 55 in a van and a sedan and had passed Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway when they heard shots.

Bullets struck two men in the Nissan and one in the truck, Michael said. The three, whose names were not disclosed, are 20, 30 and 39 years old, she said.

Police asked anyone with information is call CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200.
