LAURINBURG – Two brothers have been transported to a Chapel Hill hospital following a shooting on Anne Street over the weekend.

Police received a call of two gunshot victims at Scotland Memorial Hospital at 5:30 a.m. Saturday, according to Patrol Capt. Terry Chavis.

The two victims — Tylik Johnson and Malik Johnson — were interviewed separately. Both teens told responding officers that they had been walking when a Burgundy Chevrolet Malibu pulled up and someone began shooting, police said.

Tylik Johnson, 18, received a bullet wound to the upper arm.

Malik Johnson, 18, received a gunshot wound to the back of the head, but was alert and responsive before being transported from Scotland Memorial, according to Chavis.

The Johnsons live on Wilmington Street.
