Man surrenders in weekend Durham County shooting

Posted February 20, 2013

— A Henderson man sought in connection with a weekend shooting near Durham surrendered Wednesday morning, authorities said.

Tyrell Rashad Bullock, 23, of 147 Crowder Lane, is charged with attempted first-degree murder, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of assault by pointing a gun, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with a minor present, two counts of violating a domestic violence protective order and misdemeanor child abuse.

He was being held in the Durham County jail under a $900,000 bond.

Durham County deputies responded to a report of shots fired in the parking lot of AW North Carolina, at 4112 Old Oxford Highway, on Saturday night. Witnesses told them that Bullock had followed his ex-girlfriend, Cetara Scott, to her workplace, blocked her vehicle with his and then fired multiple shots at another man, Darius Russell, who was riding with Scott.

Russell wasn't wounded in the shooting.

Bullock and Scott’s 3-year-old son was in Bullock's car during the shooting, and Bullock took the boy with him when he fled, authorities said. An Amber Alert wasn't issued, they said, because Bullock and Scott share custody of the boy.

    This was not in the actual parking lot, it was on the entrance road leading to the parking lot before the gate & guard shack. Security responded by calling 911 as the security at AW is unarmed.

    Seems like an entire generation or two has 'grown up' believeing the only way to settle a dispute is with deadly force...

    sounds like AW needs better security and better yet, gated drive to access thier parking lot,then the liability is off thier property and also preventing other employees from being in danger from jealous boy friends.
