An 18-year-old charged with murder in a Fourth of July shooting in downtown Raleigh has now been charged with three assaults involving people who were wounded in the same incident.

Curtis Hart Rainey Jr., who has been in custody since his arrest on July 6, was served with arrest warrants in which police listed one count of assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

The murder charge against Rainey is based on the death of Raheem Khary Lawrence McAllister, 18, of Bellingham Circle.

McAllister died after being taken to WakeMed Hospital from where he was shot, near South Wilmington and East South streets, on Fourth of July night.

A 16-year-old, Kenneth Edward Watts Jr., also has been charged with murder.

The new charges against Rainey involve a woman, who the warrant says had a graze wound on an arm, and two men who were more seriously hurt.
