Durham police have charged one man in the April 29 shooting at South Roxboro and Dillard streets that injured a man and left Durham Police Chief Jose Lopez with a hole in the windshield of his unmarked car.

Lopez happened to be driving near the scene of an apparent shootout on Roxboro Street between the occupants of two vehicles. One shot struck the victim, whose condition is unknown. Lopez was not injured.

According to an update issued late Friday:

Police tracked down one suspect, Lebron “Gutta” Brown, 21, of Fidelity Drive, in Lynn, Mass., on Tuesday. He was arrested by police there after being stopped in an unrelated incident and led police there on a short chase. Lynn police charged him with disorderly conduct, breaking and entering, trespassing, possession of marijuana, cocaine and heroin and assault on a law enforcement officer, in addition to Durham's charges of assault with a deadly weapon on a government official and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. He is awaiting extradition to North Carolina.

In addition, police are trying to find Tony Anthony “Big Red” Person in connection with this incident. Person, 27, of West Corporation Street has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a government official and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

Anyone with information on Person’s whereabouts is asked to call Investigator Sole at 201-7990 or CrimeStoppers at 683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
