A Durham man was arrested this afternoon and charged with murder in the November 29 shooting death of 35-year-old Felix Morales on East Cornwallis Road.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Service Joint Fugitive Task Force arrested the man – Robert Earl Frye, 29, of Durham – in a parking lot at 901 Chalk Level Road. He has been taken to the Durham County Jail.
Officers were dispatched to a shooting call in the 100 block of East Cornwallis Road at approximately 6:20 p.m. on November 29. Upon arrival, officers found Morales who had been shot. Morales was taken to a local hospital where he died a short time later.
The shooting does not appear to have been a random incident, according to investigators.
