All three were hospitalized, but police have not characterized how badly they were hurt.

The shooting happened in the 1600 block of North Market Drive about 4:30 a.m. Sunday, police said.

Officers found the three victims when they got there, police said in a statement.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting have not been disclosed.

Arrest records showed that Brown lives on Wellingham Drive in Durham. Dawes lives on Cherry Creek Drive.

Brown is not allowed to have a gun because he was convicted in 2010 in Wake County of obtaining property by false pretense and in 2013 in Guilford County of felony breaking or entering and felony larceny.

Jail records showed that police served Brown with an additional arrest warrant charging him with assault on a female in Durham County this year. A magistrate ordered him held without bail.

Dawes’s bails was set at $10,000.
