More than a dozen police cars were at the scene as of It’s just sad, man. Every time you turn around, there is something going on,” said Keshon Blue, who said he is a family member of one of the slain men.
Blue said his teen brother was killed a few years ago.
“Just about five years ago, I lost my little baby brother in my front yard. He was 16. He was gunned down by gun violence. It’s just an ongoing roller coaster. It’s just a sad situation. You got people out there man — just jealous people — and you never know what’s going on. Like I said before, you never know what people’s motives are, why they do what they do.”
Meanwhile, three of five I-85 northbound lanes were closed at Hillandale Road, according to a statement from Durham police just before 4:10 p.m. and confirmed by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
The incident is listed as a road obstruction near Hillandale Road on the NCDOT’s website.
The estimated time of the scene clearing is 7:30 p.m., according to NCDOT.
