Durham police identified the man fatally shot at the McDougald Terrace public housing complex as Carl Suitt Jr., 27, of Durham.

Suitt was fatally shot about 6 a.m. Friday in a courtyard at the city’s largest housing project, and police were looking for the person who fired multiple rounds. No charges have been filed at this time.

Officers found the man in a courtyard between two of the two-story buildings between Dayton and Wabash streets.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said.

On the other side of one of the buildings, police evidence markers showed where several shell casings had been found.

The incident happened a short way from where informal memorials mark the scenes of two other shootings in the neighborhood.
