The victim, Tykeem Morgan, was transported to a local hospital and is currently in stable condition.   

During the investigation, officers patrolling the area received images of the two suspects involved in the shooting.  Approximately one hour later, officers spotted Micah Tillman and Kevon Christmas in the 3600 block of North 28th Street  wearing the same clothing as the two shooters on the video.  Both Tillman and Christmas were taken into custody without incident.  They were booked into jail on a series of charges after lengthy interviews with detectives. 

This investigation is still ongoing.
