Durham police investigating two separate drive-by shootings

DURHAM (WTVD) -- Durham police are investigating two separate drive-by shootings that injured four people late Monday night.

Just after 11:30 p.m., officers were called to the 1000 block of Rosedale Avenue, near Morehead Avenue about shots being fired.

Authorities said three men - an 18-year-old and two 19-year-olds - were sitting on a front porch of a house, when a dark-colored SUV with its headlights off came up the street.

A passenger in the SUV fired several shots at the victims, according to officials.

The three teens were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injures.

Authorities said a bullet also went into a bedroom of the house. A woman in the room at the time was not injured.

Just a few hours earlier, a man was shot in another drive-by shooting near Main and Elm streets.

Police said it happened just before 9 p.m. when a car drove up to the man while he standing in front of a corner store, and someone inside the vehicle fired shots at him.

The man was not seriously hurt.

Authorities have not said if the two incidents are connected.

Anyone with information about either shooting is asked to call CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200.
