DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- There has been a break in the case of a Hillside High School student gunned down earlier this year.
Anthony Feaster, 17, was shot and killed back in February on the American Tobacco Trail.
After months of investigating by Durham police, four teenagers have now been charged in the shooting. They range in age from 15 to 17. Three of the four are in custody. It's not clear what their roles were in the shooting.
The charges include robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a handgun by a minor. None of the charges include murder.
Police say they don't anticipate any other charges at this point.
Another student walking with Feaster was also shot, but has since recovered.
Feaster was set to graduate this year; he had dreams of becoming a barber.
The entire ordeal has been traumatic for the community. Now, heading into a new school year, the charges open up healing wounds.
"I would want parents to know that at Durham Public Schools, all of our departments under the leadership of our superintendent, our board, we're all working to make sure collectively that we're as proactive as we can be to protect not only the physical safety but also the social and emotional well-being (of students and staff members)," said Laverne Mattocks-Perry with Durham Public Schools Student Support Services.
DPS said it received a grant that will allow the district to provide more mental health resources for students.
DPS also said preventing gun violence remains a top priority for the district. That's why it is partnering with local law enforcement to staff officers and make them available in schools as much as possible.
