— Orange County authorities have charged a Durham woman as an accessory in a March 14 shooting death.

Jameka Okia Eubanks, 30, of 16 Woodward Lane, was charged with being an accessory after the fact of murder.

Deputies responding to a reported shooting on March 14 found Juan Barbee Young, of Jones Ferry Road in Chatham County, in the driveway at 3004 Butler Road. Young died of his wounds at UNC Hospitals.

Investigators said they determined that Young was arguing with two men, and the fight escalated into gunfire.

Last week, Eric Jermaine Bradshaw, 30, of 8015 Sandberg Lane, was charged with first-degree murder in the case.

Investigators said Eubanks drove Bradshaw from the area after the shooting.
