More arrested in death of 1-year-old shot on Christmas Day

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — More arrests have been made in the death of a 1-year-old girl shot on Christmas Day in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Ramone Jamarr Alson, 22, and Pierre Je Bron Moore, 23, were arrested Monday and each charged with first-degree murder, according to reports from local media outlets.

Ronneque Williams said by phone that her niece Maleah Williams died Monday. Chapel Hill police have said Maleah was critically wounded Friday afternoon after shots were fired from a vehicle.

The family has said the girl she was playing outside an apartment building when she was hit by stray fire from a drive-by shooting.

Police had already arrested 22-year-old Shaquille Oneill Davis on Sunday on charges including attempted first-degree murder. He was being held in jail on a $650,000 bond and was expected to return to court Tuesday.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether any of those arrested had attorneys to contact for comment on the case.
