Suspect in shooting outside Durham condo is arrested in New Bern

A man wanted in Durham on charges that he shot a man who came out of his home because he heard an early morning argument May 27 has been arrested in New Bern, officials said.

Police in New Bern on Monday arrested a man wanted in Durham on charges connected to a man's being shot and seriously hurt outside his East Hudson Avenue condominium in May.

Allah Superior Malachi, 31, who lives on Hudson Avenue, was being held in the Craven County Jail on Tuesday in lieu of $521,000 bail.

Durham police had taken out arrest warrants charging Malachi with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, two counts of assault with intent to kill, gun possession by a felon and going armed to the terror of the public.

The 62-year-old shooting victim heard arguing outside the Bay Creek condominiums at 1309 E. Hudson Ave. early on May 27, looked outside to find out what was going on and was shot, Durham police had said.

Records show he was charged with resisting arrest in Craven County.

The gun-possession charge was based on Malachi’s conviction record in Brooklyn, N.Y., police said. Hisa record in the North Carolina prison system shows two misdemeanor convictions.
