Two teens - one on a bicycle - were wounded Monday night in different parts of the city, police said.

Officers were called at 6:08 p.m. to the 3300 block of Prudence Street in the Bragtown area of northern Durham and found an 18-year-old who had been shot, Durham police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said.

The victim told police he was shot during an argument with another man. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening, Michael said.

At 9:14 p.m., police responded to a shooting call in the 1200 block of Jackson Street, off Chapel Hill Street near downtown. A 19-year-old male told officers he was on a bicycle when a man approached and shot him. There was no word Tuesday on what motivated the shooter.

The victim was taken to the hospital for injuries that don't appear life-threatening, Michael said.

No arrests have been made in either case.
