Durham, N.C. — A man on probation for trying to kill two people faces new accusations that he took part in a shoot-out along a Durham street Tuesday afternoon, police said.
Police said Thursday that Larry Joseph Harwell, 19, of Yancey Street, was one of three men seen exchanging gunfire while running north on Yancey Street, near Chapel Hill Street.
Shots were fired as the men ran past the Healthy Start Academy, 807 W. Chapel Hill St., but no one was injured.
Harwell was charged Wednesday with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, discharging a firearm within the city limits and going armed to the terror of the public. He was placed in the Durham County jail under a $50,000 bond.
Harwell was convicted of two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent kill on Nov. 7, according to state Department of Correction records. He was placed on probation and has also served probation for a June 2010 conviction for possessing stolen goods.
