Posted December 13, 2012

— A third person wanted in connection with a weekend shooting at a Durham flea market was arrested Thursday morning, police said.

Rene Moreno, 17, of Faucette Avenue, was taken into custody shortly after 8 a.m., police said.

Irving Martinez, 17, of Maplewood Drive, remains at large, and police asked that anyone with information on his whereabouts call police at 919-560-4281, extensions 29118 or 29122, or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.

Two people were injured in the Sunday afternoon shooting at Durham Green Flea Market, on Pettigrew Street. A 19-year-old man was still in a local hospital Wednesday with eight gunshot wounds, while a 31-year-old man was treated for a gunshot wound to the leg and released.

Two others charged in the case, Alexander Cardona, 17, of West Trinity Avenue, and Sergio Adrian Barboza, 17, of Sudbury Drive, were arrested Wednesday following a standoff on Sudbury Drive, police said.

Moreno, Cardona and Barboza each face one count of attempted murder and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

Cardona was being held Thursday in the Durham County jail under a $7,003,000 bond. Sergio Barboza was being held under a $5 million bond. No bond information on Moreno was available.

    Not sure why that last comment was moderated...

    @caesarrodney1980: I was not asking for anyone's OPINION. I was asking if it is LAWFUL.

    P.S. In this country individuals are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Just in case you weren't aware.

    Let's send a message. Check their documentation, prosecute them within the legal system and if they and their families are illegal, send the families packing now and then send them home after serving any penalty..

    Is it lawful to commit murder? If they are going to commit adult crimes they need to be exposed to adult punishment.

    Is it lawful to release the suspects' names and photos if they are under 18?
