A man and woman shot Thursday night in the 2200 block of Dallas Street are now suspects in a home invasion, police reported Friday afternoon.
Officers responded to a 911 call about the shooting at 7:15 p.m. Thursday. They found a 16-year-old woman and a 16-year-old man who had been shot. Both were taken to the hospital with serious injuries, police reported.
The homeowner told police that he was inside the house with another person when someone tried to kick in his door. As one suspect reached in through a broken window to open the door, the residents told police they fired shots. The woman was shot in the back and the man was shot multiple times, police said. At least one was believed to have been armed.
Police arrested a second woman, 17-year-old Alexis Shaw, and charged her with first-degree burglary. Shaw also was charged with prior warrants for burglary, conspiracy and felony larceny in connection with a Nov. 10 burglary near Nichols Farm Drive. She was placed in Durham County Jail under a $510,000 bond.
