Durham, N.C. –  On Wednesday, November 7, at approximately 11 p.m. deputies from the Durham County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 3800 block of Tyne Dr. in response to an alarm call at a home. On arrival, they observed that a glass storm door on the front porch of the home was shattered. The residents stated they were in an upstairs bedroom when they heard what sounded like a gunshot and glass shattering. Upon further investigation, it was determined that a projectile had entered at the rear of the home,traveled through the first floor and out the front door. 
During a review of home security video, a medium build, black or Hispanic woman was seen running onto the front porch of the home around the time the homeowners reported hearing the gunshot. The unidentified woman is described as being approximately 5’9”, wearing jeans and a light colored top. She is believed to be holding a black handgun in her right hand. She did not attempt to make entry into the home, or to make her presence known to anyone inside. After standing on the porch for a few seconds she ran off towards the south corner of the property. 
If you can identify this woman or have any information on this incident, please contact the Durham County Sheriff’s Office on our tipline at 919-560-7151 or via email at
