Antwan Johnson, 29, was arrested Monday morning at approximately 9:30 a.m. and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery.


Morrisville police officers responded to a report of a gunshot wound at 201 Sutter Gate Dr. at approximately 12:01 a.m. on Nov. 13 and found a man identified as Steven McRae, 47, of Durham, at the scene suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital where he underwent surgery.
