Stray bullet causes gas line leak in Durham’s McDougald Terrace

Durham police say a gas leak, reported late Tuesday in the area of Dayton and Wabash streets and likely caused by a bullet, has been capped.

The leak happened at about 11 p.m. Tuesday, said Sgt. Cheek of the Durham Police Department. No one was injured in the incident, Cheek said.

The leak forced police to evacuate residents of the McDougald Terrace housing complex, according to an ABC11 report. Police said someone fired a shot and it hit a gas line.

Police were trying to find more information about the incident, Cheek said.
