— A man wanted in connection with a Wednesday night drive-by shooting surrendered to police Friday.

Adrian Lamonte Foushee 22, of Chapel Hill, was charged with one count each of attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. He was being held in the Orange County Jail on a $1 million bond.

Several shots were fired from a vehicle at the intersection of Sykes Street and Gomains Avenue at about 10 p.m. Wednesday, police said. Two men were wounded in the shooting.

Rickey McCauley, 31, of Carrboro, was shot in the upper abdomen, and Lamont Alston, 17, of Chapel Hill, was shot in the right side, police said. McCauley was listed in stable condition at UNC Memorial Hospital, while Alston was treated at the hospital and released.

Alston is the brother of 15-year-old Quincy Bowens, who was killed in a June 25 drive-by shooting in Durham while protecting his 2-year-old niece from gunfire.
