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.
