Durham police are investigating the city’s third homicide in just over a week after a man was shot and killed early Thursday morning.
Just after midnight, a man was shot in the 300 block of Ganyard Farm Way off N.C. 98 in eastern Durham, according to police. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police have not identified the man, but said this shooting does not appear to be random.
This is the third fatal shooting in Durham in the past ten days.
