The 24-year-old Ryan Ware got shot in a Costco parking lot in Durham, North Carolina. This happened just over a week ago and he remained hospitalized Monday, according to Christian Post. Ryan is a Duke Divinity School graduate student-pastor.

“Ryan Ware remains hospitalized at this time. No charges have been filed in the case. Investigators do not have new information to release at this time,” Kammie Michael, public information officer with the City of Durham Police Department said in a statement to The Christian Post Monday.

Police reports said that Ware was shot in the stomach while inside his SUV at the Costco parking lot. It took place just after 1:30 p.m. on March 9, while he was at the 1500 block of North Pointe Drive. 

No new information about his condition has been provided so far. 
“We have not received any updates. They are trying to guard his information is what I’ve heard. I know he was in serious condition but that’s all I know,” the representative said.

The Dean of Duke Divinity School Greg Jones said that they had been surrounding Ware’s family with love and support in a statement to The Chronicle last Wednesday. 

“The Duke Divinity School community is deeply saddened and troubled by the shooting of one of our students,” Jones said. “We have been surrounding the victim and his family with love, support and prayers ever since, and we will continue to do so in the coming days."
