KILLEEN, TX — Killeen police have arrested the fourth suspect who was involved in a shooting that left a teenager with a gunshot wound to the head.

Police said they arrested Daran Cedric Hill without incident in North Carolina on Thursday.

They said he was involved in the shooting and was wanted for aggravated assault with a firearm.

Killeen police said they would like to thank the U.S. Marshal's Service, the East North Carolina Violent Fugitive Task Force and the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office for their assitance in locating the fugitive.

The 15-year-old boy, Seth, was taken to the hospital in critical but stable condition. He was found shot in the head in the 3200 block of Longview Drive around 11:45 p.m. Sunday.

"Seth was a typical 15-year-old child. He liked sports, he liked fortnight, he was visiting some friends. He was being supervised by an adult. But Seth found himself in the middle of something that he had nothing to do with it," said Killeen Police Chief Charles Kimble.

His grandparents remain optimistic.

"We’re really hoping that he’ll pull through this... not only pull through this but have some sort of future quality of life," said Seth's grandfather, who asked not to be identified.

Police arrested and identified three suspects in the shooting Wednesday morning.

Witnesses lead officers to several suspects in the shooting, who have been taken into custody.

Preston Harrington, 18, was charged with deadly conduct; Dante Hervey, 22, was charged with aggravated assault and discharge in municipality; and Donna Hervey, 44, was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Harrington's bond was set at $100,000, Dante's bond was set at $505,000 and Donna's bond was set at $50,000.

The victim is still in critical condition at Baylor Scott & White as of Wednesday.
