DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Police are investigating after two men were shot near downtown Durham on Thursday afternoon.

Police said officers found one man with a gunshot wound in the 800 block of North Mangum Street. A second man was taken to a hospital in a private vehicle.

DPD said both victims suffered life-threatening injuries.

One man told ABC11 that he heard gunshots and thought the sound was from a nearby construction project. A woman in the area said she didn't hear anything, but she is tired of how often crime happens in the neighborhood.

"It's very tiring because it happens at your doorstep or workplace like this place," said Jasmine Hudson. "Everybody including here is just tired. Tired of all this gun violence happening."

Investigators said this appears to be an isolated incident. They continued to comb through evidence through the late afternoon and early evening.

Officers arrested Sequan Malone, 22, of Durham. He has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. Malone is currently being held in the Durham County Jail with no bond.
