Police say the shooting was targeted and had signs of being gang-related.

On Sunday, the five football teams marched from the downtown YMCA to the CCB Plaza with signs of support.

Bull City Bull Dogs coach Fred Evans co-organized the march.

Police say they are receiving tips but so far no arrests have been made.

A vigil for Z’Yon was also held in Durham Sunday evening.
