Durham Police Issue Arrest Warrants For Two More Suspects In Bus Shooting

Posted December 12, 2002

— Durham police investigators have identified and charged two more suspects with shooting into an occupied school bus last week on Merrick Street.

Wednesday night, investigators issued their third arrest warrant in the case. The warrant charges 19-year-old Kevin "K.J." Burnette Johnson with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and multiple counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

Johnson had not been arrested by late Wednesday. He is described as 5-8 and 150 pounds with a light brown complexion.

Investigators are also looking for 22-year-old Keiron Rynell Williams. Williams was charged earlier Wednesday with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and numerous counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

Williams drives a dark-color Acura and is described as black, 6-0 and 145 pounds.

The bus driver and two students from Pearsontown Elementary School suffered minor injuries when a bullet shattered the back window of the bus as it was traveling on Merrick Street on Dec. 2.

Earlier this week, investigators arrested 21-year-old Mike Dwayne Brown in connection with the shooting, charging him with 17 felony counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle and one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill in connection with the shooting.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Williams or Johnson is asked to call investigator B.J. Kilgore at 560-4440, ext. 260, or CrimeStoppers at 683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases.
