Durham, N.C. — One person was killed and another was injured following a Wednesday afternoon shooting in Durham.

Authorities said one man was found dead in a wooded area at about 5:40 p.m. following the shooting near Rockwood Park in the 2300 block of Whitley Drive.

Another man was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries from a gunshot wound to the leg, police said.

Neighbors reported hearing half a dozen gunshots and resident Jesse Bikman said the crime scene looked out of place in a normally quiet neighborhood.

“I have never seen so many cars parked here before,” he said. “This is unusual.”
