Two suspects were shot and critically injured and a third suspect was arrested during a home invasion Thursday night on Dallas Street.
Officers responded to a shooting call in the 2200 block of Dallas Street at 7:15 p.m. They found a 16-year-old female suspect and a 16-year-old male suspect who had been shot. Both were taken to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
The homeowner told officers he was inside the house with another person when someone tried to kick in his door. As one suspect reached in through a broken window to open the door, the residents fired shots. The female burglary suspect was shot in the back and the male burglary suspect was shot multiple times. At least one of the suspects was believed to have been armed.
A second female suspect, 17-year-old Alexis Shaw, was arrested and charged with first-degree burglary. She was also arrested on prior warrants charging her with burglary, conspiracy and felony larceny in connection with a Nov. 10 burglary near Nichols Farm Drive. She was placed in Durham County Jail under a $510,000 bond.
First-degree burglary charges are pending against the two teen suspects who were shot.
