DURHAM (WTVD) -- Durham police are investigating a double shooting that happened early Sunday afternoon at a flea market on East Pettigrew Street.
Officers were dispatched to a shooting call at the Durham Green Flea Market shortly after 1 p.m.

According to witnesses, the younger victim was involved in a verbal altercation with several males when shots were fired.
"All of a sudden we heard seven to eight gunshots it was like really fast, I thought it was fireworks or something and I just heard screaming and everyone was running. I was scared," vendor Gabriela Mancilla said.
