With five people in custody, police are still investigating a March 16 shooting and attempted shooting in southeastern Raleigh that arrest warrants indicate was gang-related.
Rashawn Douglas Graves, 20, was hit in the head when gunfire broke out at 1801 Proctor Road, near Fountain Drive, about 5:30 p.m. on March 16, according to information police distributed and a search warrant obtained during their investigation.
Police said they believed Graves would survive.
The incident began with a call to police about gunshots heard in the area of 1700 Fountain Drive. A search warrant returned to the court clerk’s office said police found Graves shot at 1801 Proctor Road.
Three of the five people arrested from Friday through Monday were charged with attempting to kill a woman by “shooting several rounds at her because of her gang,” arrest warrants charged. The woman was not hit.
The warrants also said Graves was believed to be her boyfriend.
Police spokeswoman Laura Hourigan declined Monday to discuss details of the case or the alleged gang affiliation, saying the case remained under investigation.
Those arrested were:
- Doriann Chenielle Miller, 19, of 1700 Southgate Drive, arrested Friday
- Pleasure Nicole Jones, 18, of 717 Vardaman St., arrested Friday with Miller
- Keyana Nicole McMillian, 19, of 1510 Dock St. in Wilmington, arrested Monday
- Quandria D’Asia Bryant, 19, of 1412 Wabash St. in Durham, arrested Monday
- Kenneth Coaxum III, 22, of 1503 Civoli Court, charged Monday
- Miller and Jones were arrested at Miller’s home. McMillian and Bryant were arrested at police detective headquarters.
Miller, Jones and Bryant were charged with attempted assault with a deadly weapon, felony conspiracy and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.
McMillian and Coaxum were charged with felony conspiracy.
Coaxum was already in custody at the Wake County Detention Center when he was charged. He had been arrested March 17 on charges of common law robbery and assault on a female.
Coaxum also was accused of a probation violation, and he was being held without bail.
Arrest papers showed that Miller’s bail was set at $1000,000 and then raised to $500,000 later on the day of her arrest. The papers did not explain the change.
Jones was held in lieu of $1 million bail.
McMillian was held on $501,000 for the conspiracy charge and failure to appear in Brunswick County Court on a misdemeanor assault charge.
Bryant was held on $65,000 bail.
The search warrant covered Miller’s home. Police said they seized several 9 mm bullets they found in a car there.
