Shooting That Left 2 Dead Drug Related

One Person Dead After Quadruple Shooting

Magwood was also injured in the incident, but was treated and released to the custody of police.

- The Durham Police Department is investigating a shooting that left one woman dead Friday night.

Investigators believe the victims were involved in a gunfight.

It was the second shooting in the area within minutes, according to Glenn. One of the victims was declared dead at the scene and another was in critical condition. Shamsuddeen, 23, was in a local hospital Saturday recovering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, police spokesman Wil Glenn said. On Concord Street, they found a man who had been shot in the foot.

One person was pronounced dead on the scene and three other were taken to Saint Francis Hospital.

Police say the vehicle had multiple bullet holes and the back window had been blown out. Police said it is too early to conclude whether or not the two incidents are related. "Even with the extra uniformed presence in the neighborhood, it was of no significance, unfortunately, for this".

In a letter to community leaders and obtained by The Hartford Courant, Bronin said the evidence "strongly suggests that these shootings were drug-related, as numerous individuals involved were in the narcotics trade, and most had criminal records".
