— A man charged with shooting a Durham police officer is due in court Monday.

Last week, Officer D.B. Vereen was shot in the back and arm while responding to a break-in in progress at 1410-A Cherrycrest Drive.

David Williams, 22, was later arrested and charged with second-degree burglary, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer with a firearm.

Williams is being held in the Durham County jail under a $1 million bond and is scheduled to  appear in court Monday.

Authorities are still looking for Kevin Johnson, 24. Johnson is facing the same charges as Williams.

Anyone with information on Johnson's whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.
