— Tyrico Bowens, the second of two men sought in connecting with a man being shot from behind on Eva Street on May 7, was in custody Wednesday, police said.

Officer arrested Bowens, 19, of Grant Street, on Tuesday after a foot chase on Dale Street, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said.

Bowens’ arrest happened near where 17-year-old Jarrion Hood was arrested May 10 in the 900 block of Angier Avenue.

A 36-year-old man, whose identity police have withheld, was seriously hurt on Eva Street after two men walked up behind him, shot and then fled in a van, police said.

After police caught Bowens, he was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, kidnapping, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of what state law calls a Schedule IV drug, a class that includes depressants and stimulants.

Like Hood, Bowens was being held in lieu of $5 million bail.
