Durham police have arrested a suspect in connection with a shooting death at a party earlier this month.

On Oct. 20, police responded to a shooting at the Campus Crossings apartment complex. Police found 23-year-old Demario Lucas, of Durham lying in a breezeway. He had been shot and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A second man was taken to the hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to the ankle.

The shooting apparently occurred during an argument at a party, according to investigators.

Police arrested 18-year-old Montreal Malik Russell Thursday and charged him with murder. Russell was arrested at the Wake Inn in Raleigh.
