One of the victims of the shooting, Tauquez Elfthaniel Mann, 20, later died as a result of his injuries, Raleigh Police said Thursday evening.

Tauquez Mann was just 20 years old.



The other two victims sustained what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

They were taken to WakeMed for treatment.

Now, 24-year-old Elaton Omar White and 16-year-old James Keavon McCallum are charged with murder and aggravated assault.



They were captured after a separate shooting along Interstate 40 just after 7 p.m. between Trailwood Drive and Lake Wheeler Road.

The driver of the vehicle sustained a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and subsequently ran off the road. After the crash, White and McCallum - who were passengers - got out and ran. Police caught up to them in the 1500 block of Main Campus Drive right around the Lonnie Poole Golf Course. Their mugshots show they were banged up in the crash.
