Posted December 16, 2002

— Durham police investigators have arrested a second suspect in a Dec. 2 school bus shooting on Merrick Street.

Keiron Williams, 22, of Daye Street in Hillsborough was arrested after he turned himself in late Sunday. Williams was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and several counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

Investigators are still looking for a third suspect, Kevin "K.J." Burnette Johnson, 19, of 2217 Concord Street. Johnson has also been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and several counts of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle. Johnson is described as 5 feet 8 inches tall and 150 pounds with a light brown complexion.

Earlier this week, investigators arrested Mike Dwayne Brown, 21, of 3031 Weymouth Street and charged 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.

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.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of 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.
