Police are investigating two separate shootings from early this week in Durham that sent two people to area hospitals.
The first shooting happened about 9:32 p.m. on Monday on the 200 block of North Blacknall Street. Police said a 12-year-old boy was walking on Blacknall Street when shots were fired from a vehicle.
Police were unable to get a clear description of the suspect car.
The boy was struck in the hip and was taken to an area hospital. Authorities believe his injuries are non-life threatening.
No charges have been filed in Monday’s shooting, but investigators believe an argument earlier in the day could have been the cause. Investigators also do not believe the shooting was random. 
The second shooting happened just before 10 p.m. Tuesday on the 1300 block of Camden Avenue.
A 48-year-old woman sustained serious injuries when shots were fired into her apartment. She was taken to an area hospital for treatment. 
Police do not have a suspect description in the Camden Avenue shooting.
Anyone with information on either incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
