Probationers charged in fatal Durham shooting

Posted April 21, 2010

— Durham police charged four men between 16 and 21 years old after a fatal Tuesday shooting on Dearborn Drive.

Department of Correction records show that three of the suspects were or are on probation for firearms convictions.

Jermaine Jackson, 25, of Durham, was shot near a basketball court in the 3800 block of Dearborn Drive around 12:40 p.m., said police spokesman Kammie Michael. He was transported to Duke University Hospital, where he died Wednesday afternoon.

Police took four suspects into custody about an hour later after spotting a vehicle thought to be used in shooting in the 200 block of Gray Avenue, Michael said. Two men were arrested at the scene, and two were caught after a short foot chase.

Willie Jackson, 16, of New Light Road in Wake Forest; Neiko Malloy, 18, of Elizabeth Street in Durham; and Saquan Facyson, 16, of Lowry Avenue in Durham, were charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

They were being held in the Durham County jail under separate $800,000 bonds.

Demetrius Lloyd, 21, of Delano Street in Durham, was charged with resisting, delaying and obstructing officers and driving without a license. He was placed in the Durham County jail under a $5,000 bond.

Facyson and Malloy are on probation for firearms convictions, and Lloyd recently served a prison sentence on weapons charges, according to state Department of Correction records.

DOC records show that Facyson was convicted in March of attempted possession of a firearm by a minor and drug charges. Malloy was convicted in September of carrying a concealed weapon and going armed to the terror of the public, records say. He had previous convictions for possession of a firearm by a minor and possessing stolen goods.

Lloyd served a one-month prison sentence last May for a probation revocation, according to DOC records. His probation stemmed from convictions for discharging a firearm into property and going armed to the terror of the public. He also has previous convictions for carrying a concealed weapon and drug charges.

    Whocares....Probation and Parole are two different things. Parole is served after a prison sentence and Probation is served in lieu of a prison sentence.

    As far as his 30 days...The guy likely had a 30 day sentence that was revoked due to probation violations or he elected to serve and he served his thirty days.

    That Lloyd guy served 1 month for a parole violation with all the charges against him. What was his original sentence? He should have still been in jail where he belonged.

    We need more gun laws. That is the only answer. Obama, save us, you are our only hope.

    "What will be interesting to see is how much contact have the police had with these defendants while they have been on probation."

    What would help the probation dept is if they were on the same system as NCSHP, County Police, City police, and town police. Everyone should use the same system so information is easily accessible. But no, not in NC.

    "shows just how well the probation system in NC works"

    What would you have them do, babysit them for 24 hours a day?

    Until the Probation/Parole Dept is allowed by the GOV (yes I said it) to act as a law enforcement agency rather than beat around the bush acting like "social workers", none of this will change. These people on probation don't care, 99% of them won't turn their life around. It's time we start treating a snake like a snake rather than pretending it a bunny rabbit.

    What will be interesting to see is how much contact have the police had with these defendants while they have been on probation. Have the probation officers been handling all the curfew checks and visits as required by their sentences. If there have been violations, are the probation officers prevented from violating their probation by chiefs who are concerned about "numbers" to show the effectiveness of programs to protect funding? Lots of factors that are in play when it comes to people who are on probation.

    How is this the Probation Department's problem?

    I saw this yesterday when I was carrying my mama to the Dr. They had the whole front entrance taped off, police everywhere. The guy that got shot ran from the back of the complex which is blocked off to the front as you come off of Old Oxford Hwy.From what I understood, he got shot in the neck and the face. At least the ones that did it got caught.No telling who they would have shot next.
