Arrest made in Burlington killing

Posted September 4, 2014

— A Hillsborough man was arrested and charged Thursday afternoon with a shooting in Burlington that left one dead and another injured.

Deshawn Ingram, 19, was arrested at the Tanglewood Apartments in Mebane without incident. Ingram, who was charged with first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, was being processed by Burlington police Thursday evening. His bond information was not immediately available.

Ingram is accused of shooting Raphael Devante Currie, 24, and David Israel Williams, 24, both of Burlington, at the Quality Inn on Maple Avenue in Burlington at around 2:30 a.m. Sunday. The men were transported to Alamance Regional Medical Center, where Williams died. Currie was then flown to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.

Witnesses said they heard an argument on the second floor, where the men were found, before the shooting. Police said a large crowd was at the hotel attending an album release.

    Looks like he's holding back a smile. Well let's see his look after being locked up for a few months serving a life sentence. Hope you got good "street cred" in jail for this one. Why do these type of people think the only thing that's important is street cred and that usually requires a life stay in the pen. I don't get it

    while you are correct I see nothing in this story about owed money or love gone wrong.

    When are people going to learn you cannot collect money owed you from a dead person or the lady you want is not going to coming running to you because you shot the guy she was flirting with.. We women want a real man that will be there with us not behind bars and not a bully that we cannot trust to protect us

    Maybe he won't have a blank stare after his cellmates finish with him.
