Durham police have arrested a second man in connection with May 2012 homicide on Mordecai Street.

Officers responded to a shooting call in the 3300 block of Mordecai Street at 2:29 a.m. on May 1, 2012. When they arrived, they found a male ? 35-year-old Carl Pressley ? who had been shot inside his apartment. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators believe Presley was shot after two males forced their way into the apartment.

On Tuesday investigators charged 24-year-old Marcus Shareef, of Raynor Street with murder, attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and first-degree burglary.

On May 2, 2012 officers arrested 16-year-old Kerry Graham Jr., of 1315 Morreene Road and charged him with first-degree murder and first-degree burglary in connection with this case. He was arrested at the Red Roof Inn on N.C. 55.
