— Police are seeking two suspects in an early-morning shooting Tuesday on Pope Road in Durham County.

Rahmil Dimitri Ingram, 20, and Jahmil Deshawn Ingram, 18, are facing several charges in the shooting, which Chapel Hill police said was not a random act. Both men are considered armed and dangerous, police said. Anyone who sees them should call 911, but do not approach them, Asst. Police Chief Jabe Hunter said in a news release.

They are known to frequent Durham and Orange counties, Hunter said. They also have lived in the Hillsborough area, he said.

Rahmil Ingram is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, first-degree burglary, second-degree kidnapping, discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling and two counts of assault by pointing a gun. Jamil Ingram is charged with first-degree burglary, second-degree kidnapping and other related conspiracy charges.

The men – who are brothers – are accused of shooting Kenneth Hardin, 45, in the left hand and the stomach around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday. Hardin was taken to UNC Hospitals for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries and released. According to a police report, several people were at the scene when the shooting occurred. It is not clear who lived at the residence, which is inside the Chapel Hill town limits, Hunter said.

Anyone with information about the shooting or the whereabouts of Rahmil Ingram or Jahmil Ingram should call Crimestoppers at 919-942-7515. Online tips can be sent by email to crimetips@townofchapelhill.org. Calls to Crimestoppers are confidential, and callers may be eligible for a cash reward.
