Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — It took six months, but Raleigh police have finally made arrests in connection with a shooting that injured a minor league baseball player and his friend.

Bryce Williams, Malcolm Whitley and Kevin Graham are charged with firing shots into the Waffle House on Capitol Boulevard last September.

Police say Graham, Williams and Whitley got into an argument with someone in the restaurant and were asked to leave. Police say they came back to the restaurant and fired shots inside.

All three are charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury.

Police say Williams and Whitley are being held in the Wake County jail. Graham is being held in Wayne County on unrelated murder charges.

Delvin James, a pitcher with the Durham Bulls, was hit in the shoulder. His friend, Monique McNelly, was hit in the stomach and was left paralyzed.

Police say neither James nor McNellie was involved in the argument that preceded the shooting.
