Authorities investigating death of man shot while driving down street in Durham


DURHAM, North Carolina — Authorities are investigating the death of a man shot while driving down the street in Durham over the weekend.

Police tell local media outlets that 22-year-old Jonathan McClain was driving down the street at around 2:45 a.m. Sunday when several shots were fired in his direction from another vehicle.

McClain was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities say two other men in his vehicle were also shot and taken to the hospital with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.

Neighbors say McClain lived less than a mile from where he was shot.

Authorities are still investigating, and no charges have been filed.
