— Two suspects were in custody Friday night in connection with a shooting near Enloe High School, Raleigh Police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.

Juvenile petitions and a secure custody order have been obtained on a 15-year-old juvenile for possession of a firearm by a minor and discharging a firearm in the city.

The other suspect in custody, 16-year-old Jose Isaac Martinez-Yanes, was charged with possession of a firearm by a minor.

The charges stem from reports of gunshots along Bertie Drive and Culpepper Lane, behind the school at 128 Clarendon Crescent, shortly after 7 a.m. Friday – around the time the school day was starting.

No one was injured.

Administrators rushed students into buildings when they heard gunshots, but classes started on time, and the school was not put on lockdown, said Mike Evans, a spokesman for the Wake County Public School System.

Police said the shooting involved a group of people who quickly fled the area. Some left on foot, and others were seen in vehicles heading north, police said.

Although some students park along the street, police described the shooting as "a community incident" that is unrelated to the school or students.
