DURHAM, N.C. - Durham police arrested a man involved in an early morning shooting Friday at a Durham apartment complex.

A 6-year-old boy and his 29-year-old step-father, Christopher Graham, were both shot Friday at an apartment at 412 East Pilot Street around 5 a.m., police said.

Police said Graham was hit in the foot by a bullet and the little boy underwent surgery for critical injuries that investigators said were more serious.

Durham police said Graham was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, assault by pointing a gun, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, injury to real property and discharging a firearm within the city limits.

Graham was taken to the Durham County Jail under a $500,000 bond.

Some who live there say its not the first time they’ve had to deal with shootings. And one one of the buildings  in the complex, WNCN observed several old bullet holes in the drain pipes and siding from a previous incident.

Fatima Jenkins has lived in the complex for two years.  When asked how bad conditions were, she replied, "I‘ll say this, it’s highly concerning the activity that goes on."

She said the problems seem to take place in "certain areas in the complex." She says those areas "have quite a bit more activity that takes place."
 
She said she'd liked to see  more control over the housing area.

"I think management can do a better job in securing this place," she said.


This latest shooting involving a young child cuts close to home for some.

"That’s just crazy," said Kane. "It’s not safe anymore I guess; people are getting shot up in their house."

Meanwhile, some residents are looking for answers.

"There’s quite a bit of children in this complex and they do move around and I would like to know what’s going on and whoever caused this is apprehended," said Jenkins.


Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers a 919-683-1200.
