Police seek car after shots fired near East Campus
Five parked vehicles and a house were hit by gunfire Wednesday morning near Duke University’s East Campus, and police are looking for a car that was seen traveling through the neighborhood.
Residents in the Trinity Park neighborhood reported seeing a sport-utility vehicle – a yellow Nissan Xterra – driving slowly down Lamond Avenue and Watts Street with someone inside firing shots about 7 a.m.
No one was reported injured.
A resident said he was standing at his front door when he saw the Xterra traveling down his street, and noticed a red dot from a laser sight on his car. He said he heard gunshots.
The man said he looked back outside and saw that two of his car windows had been shattered.
Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felonies. Callers never have to identify themselves.
