REIDSVILLE, N.C. -- One 18-year-old is dead and another 18-year-old injured after a shooting in a Reidsville neighborhood.

Rockingham County Sheriff's Office says 911 received a call that a man was shot in the 200 block of Dover Circle. While on the way, deputies learned there was another man shot close by along Clebourne Court.

Deputies say the man near Clebourne Court, Noah Belton, was found dead at his home. A release says Sheriff's Investigators believe Belton had a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The medical examiner hasn't determined an official cause of death yet.

The man from Dover Circle, Dylan Christian, was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
