DURHAM, N.C. — North Carolina authorities are searching for a gunman who walked into a Durham tire store and shot four people, killing two and leaving two others wounded before fleeing the scene.

The Durham County Sheriff’s Office says the shooting happened Friday at JT Tire. Deputies initially thought owner John Turner had also been shot, but said later he suffered minor injuries while trying to find cover from the gunfire.

Investigators say the gunman was described by witnesses as a six-foot-tall black male wearing a bright colored T-shirt and with a tattoo on the left side of his face. He was seen fleeing while driving a silver sedan.

Deputies say the two people wounded in the shooting were taken to local hospitals. Information about their conditions and identities was not immediately available.
