Durham, N.C. — Police are investigating the shootings of two teenage half-brothers who were found outside a vacant house in Durham Tuesday afternoon.
Officers were called shortly before 1:30 p.m. to Grace Lane and Liberty Street, where the boys, ages 14 and 16, were found and taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. They were both in critical condition early Wednesday morning.
A police spokeswoman said investigators are trying to determine the circumstances surrounding the shootings and could not provide any other information except to say they were shot in a home.
Witnesses said they ran for help and flagged for help and flagged down a bus to call police.
The scene was approximately two miles from a fatal shooting Monday night on Fidelity Drive in which officers found a man lying dead in the road.
Anyone with information about either of the cases can call the Durham Police Department at 919-560-4440 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.
