Kimeko Satterfield, 34, approached the teen at the Durham Station Transportation Center, 515 W. Pettigrew St., and shot her, investigators said. She is expected to be OK.
Police said that another person at the bus stop was treated for minor injuries.
Investigators characterized the shooting as a domestic incident, but they didn't say what Satterfield's relationship to the girl is, citing a need to protect her identity.
Satterfield faces two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and one count each of discharging a firearm in the city limits and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
He was convicted of felony assault inflicting serious injury in 2002, according to state Department of Correction records. He also has misdemeanor convictions for breaking and entering, larceny and unauthorized use of motor conveyance.
