Woman shot in car during dispute in Durham (WTVD)

Authorities in Durham are investigating after a woman was shot while inside a car early Wednesday morning.

It happened around 1:15 a.m. near NC-55 and East Cornwallis Road.

Police tell ABC11 that the incident is being called a "rolling domestic disturbance" after a man reportedly shot the woman and then drove off with the woman's son.

The woman was able to seek help at the Circle K in the 3300 block of NC-55. She was then taken to Duke University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

According to authorities, the boy was later dropped off at a relative's house in Greensboro, and is doing OK.

Police are still searching for the suspect.

The incident remains under investigation at this time.

We believe very strongly that our audience should have an opportunity to discuss and debate events in our world, however, we have not been able to moderate the comments as well as we would like. Instead of hosting a platform that could allow a few loud and ugly voices to dominate a conversation, we want to encourage everyone to join us on our social media platforms and speak out there.
