Police seeking witnesses after resident fatally shot at Carrboro apartment complex

Carrboro police are looking for anyone who may have seen or heard something after a man was found shot to death at Estes Park Apartments late Wednesday night.

Officers responded around 11:40 pm to Building C in the complex of two-story, red brick apartments at 306 Estes Drive Ext.

They found an adult male who lived at the complex who had been fatally shot, according to a news release. His name has not been released.

911 callers describe silver car

Orange County 911 began getting calls from neighbors who heard the gunshots around 11:37 p.m. A group of people were attempting to help the victim, who was lying in the parking lot outside Building C, two callers said.

One described seeing a silver car with two or three people inside drive away from the complex after the person was shot, according to the calls released Thursday. Police later reported the car might be a four-door sedan, possibly a gray or silver Honda Civic that had been reported stolen, according to emergency radio communication.

At least two callers said they heard five or six gunshots, but did not see what happened.

“I don’t think they’re moving at all. They’re just laying there,” one caller said. Other people were coming out of the apartments and gathering around the person in the parking lot, they said.

Carrboro Police Chief Chris Atack said Thursday not confirm some of the callers’ information but said police are seeking a woman who is a “person of interest” in the case.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed the shooting or who has information to contact Investigator R. Trombley at 919-918-7415, or Crime Stoppers at 919-942-7515. Crime Stoppers allows tipsters to remain anonymous if they wish.
