TABOR CITY, NC (WECT) – Two men were injured Wednesday night in a shooting that Tabor City's police chief believes was in response to a February murder. 

Police Chief Donald Dowless said shots were fired from two vehicles on Reece St. between 9 and 10 p.m.  

Jeffrey Antwan Billings, 32, was struck in the hip and hand.  Davon Jaquest Johnson, 17, was shot in the side, Dowless said.  

The two men were taken to McLeod hospital in Loris then transferred to Grand Strand Medical Center in Myrtle Beach. They were released Thursday. 

Dowless said police have identified several suspects, including one who may be charged Thursday. 

The chief believes the shooting stemmed from the Feb. 22 murder of Dion Durhan Gore, who was shot at close range while sitting in a parked car near Queen Street and West Sixth Street in Tabor City.
