Two teens wounded in legs in Durham shootings

A 17-year-old and an 18-year-old were each shot in a leg in incidents in Durham on Tuesday night, police said.

Two teenagers were each shot in the leg in separate incidents Tuesday night, police reported.

Neither received a life-threatening wound, and police asked the public to give them any information that might help them identify suspects.

Shortly before 8 p.m., Michael Gibson, 18, was shot while he was standing in a common area behind Building 23 in the city’s McDougald Terrace public housing complex, police said.

They said several people were seen running from the area after the shooting.

A little over three hours later, Tylahand Hughes, 17, was shot while he was in the 200 block of Cook Road, a statement said.

Gibson was taken to Duke University Hospital by ambulance, and Hughes was taken by a family member, police said.

They asked anyone who can help them in either case to call CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200.
