Posted June 2, 2010

— A Henderson man was charged Wednesday in a weekend shooting that left one dead and two wounded, police said.

Patrick Lebraska McLeod, 22, of 515 Davis St., was charged with second-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, possession of a firearm by a felon and felony inciting a riot. He was being held in the Vance County Jail under a $205,000 bond.

Hassan Terry, 19, of Henderson, was killed Saturday night in a shooting in the 500 block of Lone Street, police said.

A 9-year-old boy was shot twice in the incident and was in intensive care at Duke University Hospital. A 20-year-old man who also was shot was treated at Maria Parham Hospital and released.

Terry’s mother, Brenda Harris, said the shooting occurred during a celebration honoring her late son, Raymond Dunn, who died after collapsing during a basketball game at Vance Granville Community College in February.

Police didn't release details about a possible motive in the shootings or what information led to McLeod's arrest.

    This is getting ridiculous. Actually its past ridiculous. There should be NO BOND at all. Why on earth let these people out to wreek more havoc until trial time??? I pray for the injured child and families of those hurt. Law enforcement, listen up, we are sick of sharing our freedom with these criminals you keep letting back out. LOCK THEM UP.
