DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Three people are in custody after a stolen vehicle suspected of being involved in a drive-by shooting crashed in northern Durham

The crash happened near the 700 block of Woodgreen Drive.

The incident began when Durham Police in the 3600 block of Wiggins Street heard several gunshots, which struck three apartments and the main office at the Oxford manor apartments.
