Durham Police Chief Jose Lopez said at a news conference currently taking place that the State Bureau of Investigation found that gloves Jesus Huerta wore were saturated with gunshot residue. Huerta died in November in the back of a Durham police car in the parking lot of police headquarters. Police have said he was handcuffed at the time. 

No residue was found on Officer Samuel Duncan's hands. Duncan was driving the car, but leapt out when there was a loud noise.

Lopez also addressed a vigil that was held Thursday night for Huerta. Six people were arrested in the march. One person minor injuries, Lopez said.
