06/24/11 177 W - + 2 - 1 Durham Shootings

Just how many shootings have occurred in the Bull City lately? Here's a list as found via Google News. Omitting the drive-by shooting on I-540 (Raleigh) and the multiple fatality shooting on Highway 54 (RTP). Should be interesting to see how public perception and reaction develops. There's also no historical context to this information. Is this number of shootings unusual for comparable periods at other times of the year? And for that matter, how does a comparison look against such incidents in, say, Raleigh?

Raleigh/Wake County I believe has an equal amount of shootings. Often they aren’t published in the news.

Durham has twice the crime risk of Raleigh in most catagories. http://www.clrsearch.com/Durham_Demograp..
