1 killed in double shelling at Durham apartment complex: police


DURHAM, NC (WNCN) — One person was killed and another wounded in a shooting at an apartment complex in Durham Thursday afternoon, police said.

Police responded around 4:30 p.m. on Avon Lake Drive in south Durham. They arrived to find two victims, police said.

Tedder is 10 years old and lives with his family in the apartment complex. He said when he got home from the Boys and Girls Club he saw the police cars.

“I was confused,” he said.

The officers worked for hours and into the night. They removed the crime tape and allowed residents to return to their homes just before 11pm but said it remained an active investigation.

The police informed us that one of the victims died at the scene and the other was taken to the hospital. The condition of the second victim was not specified by the police.

“I had a friend who went and threw out trash and he said he heard pop, pop, and I heard it too,” said Victoria Felton. “After things settled down I went upstairs and saw the lady on the ground.”

However, Felton and even Tedder told CBS17 that this isn’t the first time they’ve been startled by gunshots.

“I’m very tired of hiding in the closet or the bathroom. It gets very scary at times,” Tedder said.

Felton said her focus is to protect her daughter and mother.

“After hearing a car backfire, we duck,” she said. “I’m trying to get through school and I want to get my family out of here.”

CBS 17 will update this story as more information is released.
