Coats said 30-year-old Shaduntee Daquan Buie, of Raeford, was arrested Thursday afternoon in Fayetteville by the U.S. Marshall Service and Fayetteville police.

Coats said Melvin was shot Monday at about 12:13 p.m. in Bunnlevel.

He said she was in her car on Lemuel Black Road with her boyfriend and their two children when Buie and two other men fired several shots into their car.

The three men were also in vehicles, according to the sheriff.

Coats said Melvin was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Buie is charged with:

  • Four counts of attempted murder
  • Three counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury
  • Discharging a weapon into a moving vehicle

He is being held at the Harnett County Detention Center under a $1 million bond.
