Melvin was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another person was transported to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center where he or she is listed in serious condition.

Loved ones said Melvin lived at a home on the street with family members and mostly kept to himself.

"He was a good boy. Never left home without telling you he loved you," Melvin's aunt Tracey Freeman told ABC11. "He wasn't a troublemaker, he was in his own little world and tended to his business."

Police are trying to determine whether the shooting was random or targeted.
