DURHAM, N.C. — Durham police said a 19-year-old has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly shot and injured two teenagers.

WTVD-TV reported that Thomas Deangelo Griffin is accused of shooting the victims around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at a vacant home on Grace Lane.

Authorities said the victims are 14 and 16 years old and that the 14-year-old was shot multiple times.

Durham Police have not publicly identified the teens. A spokesperson said one is listed in stable and the other in critical condition.

Authorities said one of the boys walked wounded down the block and flagged down a Durham County senior citizen transit bus and pleaded for help from the driver.

The suspect was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of attempted murder. His bond was set at $1 million.

A search of Griffin’s criminal records shows misdemeanor arrests going back to 2010 for offenses ranging from carrying a concealed weapon to communicating threats.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information can call Cpl. K. Johnson at (919) 560-4281, ext. 29118 or CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200.
