1 dead in shooting near Durham's Southpoint mall

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) [--] A man is dead following a daytime shooting in a popular South Durham shopping area and at least three suspects are being questioned following a high-speed chase.

The shooting happened Saturday about 1:15 p.m. outside Moe's Southwest Grill, which is across Fayetteville Road from the Streets at Southpoint mall. When police arrived, they found a bloodied man lying in the parking lot. According to media reports, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers later attempted to pull over a vehicle traveling on Fayetteville Road matching a description of a vehicle seen leaving the shooting. The driver refused to stop, starting a chase that ended when the vehicle crashed near Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway.

Three occupants of the vehicle have been taken to Durham Police headquarters for questioning.
