Daran Cedric Hill, 41, was arrested earlier in the day Thursday with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service, the East North Carolina Violent Fugitive Task Force and the New Hanover County, N.C., Sheriff’s Office, police said.

The three other suspects in the shooting remain in the Bell County Jail.

Preston Harrington, 18, of Killeen is named in a complaint charging deadly conduct.

His bond was set at $100,000.

Dante Hervey, 22, of Killeen was charged with aggravated assault and discharge in a municipality.

His bonds total $5,000.

Donna Hervey, 44, of Killeen, was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Her bond was set at $50,000.

Witnesses identified several suspects whom investigators later located and took into custody, but the names of the three people weren’t released until Wednesday.

In a press conference Wednesday, Killeen Police Chief Charles Kimble said investigators believe the teenager, identified only as Seth, was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"(It was) retaliatory. It appears it was some kind of neighborhood beef and one group retaliated against another. Seth found himself in the middle of it, had nothing to do with it," Kimble said.

Police say Seth was visiting friends at a home in the 3200 block of Longview Drive with five children and one adult when gunshots pierced the residence at around 11:45 p.m. Sunday.

Seth, the only person injured, was struck in the head.

He was taken first to Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center and then was transferred to Scott & White Medical Center in Temple.
