DURHAM, N.C. -

Durham police investigators are trying to locate Samuel Rivera, who is wanted in connection with a Jan. 6 aggravated assault in the 400 block of Green Street.

A man told officers he was standing on a porch shortly before 6 p.m. when several males parked a vehicle in front of the house and fired several shots. No one was injured but five shots struck a house.

Rivera, 18, of Firth Road is wanted on one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, Durham Police said.

Two other men – Christian Colato, 19, of Liberty Street and Jose Luis Perez-Alejandre, 18, of East Markham Avenue – have been arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill in connection with this case.

Perez- Alejandre is also charged with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury in connection with a January 9 shooting in the 400 block of Green Street. 

Several people were standing around a vehicle in the 400 block of Green Street when shots were fired from a vehicle going down the street with its lights off. A 19-year-old female was shot in the hip and hand, police said. She was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. A vehicle was also damaged by gunfire.

Colato and Perez-Alejandre were also charged by Durham police investigators in connection with a Jan. 15 carjacking in the 1800 block of Chapel Hill Road. The victim was parking his car when two males armed with guns approached him and demanded his car. The males fled in the victim's white Toyota. They were both charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, larceny of a motor vehicle, felony conspiracy, assault by pointing a gun and possession of a motor vehicle in connection with that case.

The car was used later that night in connection with an armed robbery in Durham County.

Anyone with information on Rivera's whereabouts is asked to call Cpl. C. Richards at (919) 560-4582, ext. 29241 or CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
