DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- After gunshots rang out, a stolen car crashed into a potted plant outside Tobacco Road Sports Café in downtown Durham.
Durham Police Department said the chaos happened Tuesday morning around 10:30. Two men in a stolen car opened fire at two people walking in front of the restaurant.
The men in the car then crashed, got out of the car and ran off.
Police found multiple shell casings in the area, but nobody reported being injured. One business in the area did have minimal property damage.
Quashawn Cunningham and his dog Prince walk around the American Tobacco Campus. On Tuesday, their daily hangout was the backdrop for a violent day.
"It makes you a little curious and had to be like a little wary about what times you come outside," Cunningham said..
Brian Murphy is the general manager at Nana Steak. It's steps away from where police spent hours investigating Tuesday's drive-by shooting.
"I'm sure people might be a little bit nervous. I feel like with the security that we have around here and the American Tobacco campus is really good, we're really well lit and we feel safe here," Murphy said.
Murphy is hopeful this incident won't keep people away since the police said the shooting wasn't random. But other businesses have seen the effects of this city's gun violence with a loss of customers, employees, and revenue.
"Hopefully it's just an isolated incident and we can all keep going and move forward," Murphy said.
