A Durham man has been arrested in connection with a shooting death last month, police said Wednesday.

Willis Reginald Hart Jr., 37, was charged with murder and was being held without bond in the Durham County jail.

Durham police found Kenya Lamont Thompson, 46, with a gunshot wound inside a vehicle in the 4300 block of North Roxboro Road on Feb. 7.

Thompson had apparently been wounded in a shooting that occurred near Old Oxford Road and Hebron Road, police said, and he died at a nearby hospital.

Police said the shooting wasn’t random.
