— 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.
