CHAPEL HILL — Two men shot Sunday after the Apple Chill street fair belong to a Durham gang called the 9-Trey Bloods, police said Tuesday.
Police continued to withhold the men's names but said both were in stable condition in intensive care at UNC Hospitals.
Chapel Hill Police Officer Mitch McKinney said that one of the men is 21 years old and from Durham, and the other is 19 and from Wake Forest.
The Durham man, who was shot in the head and chest, flashed Blood signs as he was being put into an ambulance at the scene, McKinney said. He required a breathing tube and has been unable to speak, he said.
The Wake Forest man also had not spoken to police as of Tuesday afternoon, McKinney said.
The Chapel Hill Town Council voted unanimously to end the annual street fair after three people were shot at or after it.
The two gang suspects were shot in front of Caribou Coffee at 110 W. Franklin St. about 8:40 p.m. Sunday.
A third man, Hassan William Breeden, 20, of Durham, was found shot during a traffic stop at East Franklin Street and Elliott Road. Breeden was shot in the right thigh but refused treatment, said police spokeswoman Jane Cousins.
Breeden is out on bail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury after Durham police say he shot two men at a Wendy's. He also has drug charges pending, court records show.
About 30,000 people attended Apple Chill, which featured craftspeople and music on six stages downtown. After its 6 p.m. close, however, the mostly family crowd shifted to predominantly young people for the unofficial gathering called "After Chill."
Police arrested 11 people, including two charged with carrying a concealed weapon. Another 87 traffic citations were issued, mostly for helmet and seat-belt violations.
