— Durham police arrested a Durham man Thursday who has been charged with murder following a fatal shooting March 22 at an apartment on Liberty Street.

Durham police investigators suspect that Jermaine Alexander Gibbs, 18, of Eva Street, fatally shot a 21-year-old man inside 561 Liberty St., Apt. 9, just after 10:03 p.m. March 22.
