Police are searching for suspects after a person was shot Tuesday night in Durham.

The suspects fought with a resident who opened the door and shots were fired, police said.

Following the altercation, several people ran from the home, including one who fell out a window, and one person went to the nearby North Carolina Central University campus to call 911.
