Elizabeth City police have identified the two men who were treated at area hospitals Thursday afternoon for non-life threatening gunshot wounds. 

The men are Jordan Shaffer and Chase Taylor, both 18, police spokeswoman Barbara Morgan said in the press release Thursday night.

Police said they responded to a report of shots fired in the Halstead Boulevard Extended area about 1:21 p.m. When officers arrived, Morgan said they found Shaffer, who had suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his right leg, and Taylor, who had suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his right leg and right shoulder.

Both men were initially transported to Sentara Albemarle Medical Center for treatment, Morgan said. Taylor has since been transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital for further treatment, she said.

Neither Shaffer nor Taylor is cooperating with police in their investigation, Morgan said. 

Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting of the two men to call the police department at 335-4321 or Crime Line at 335-5555.
