— U.S. Marshals in Raleigh on Thursday arrested a man who had been sought in a June 10 street murder in Durham.

Mark Anthony Stevons, 18, of 1715 Avondale Drive, Durham, was picked up after Durham police got a tip through the Crime Stoppers network, they said. He faces a murder charge in the death of Johnnie Junior Moore, of Durham.

Investigators said Moore was standing near a dark-colored sports utility vehicle on Liberty Street on the night of June 10 when the vehicle's occupants shot him.

Police arrested Don Tray Cole, 33, of Elm Street a day later. Cole's year-long parole for assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury had been set to expire June 12.
