Durham police investigate fatal shooting
DURHAM (WTVD) -- Authorities in Durham are investigating a shooting after a man was found lying in the road overnight.
Just before midnight, Durham police were called to the 400 block of Melbourne Drive about someone suffering from a gunshot wound.
When officers arrived, they found 25-year-old Michael Lee of West Club Boulevard lying in the road. He was declared dead at the scene.
A spokesperson with the Durham Police Department said a preliminary investigation showed several men armed with guns broke into a home in the 400 block of Melbourne and Lee was shot during the home invasion. She said a resident of the home was taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
The spokesperson did not identify the shooter.
Officers arrested Lewis James Little, 19, of Kilarney Drive at the scene and charged him with one count of first-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of felony conspiracy and three counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. Little was placed in Durham County Jail under a $1,425,000 bond.
Investigators are still trying to identify additional suspects.
