RALEIGH, N.C. -

Police have charged a man in connection with a shooting early Wednesday morning at the intersection of Rock Quarry Road and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Joshua Earl Holloman, 22, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. Police say Holloman shot 23-year-old Darrell Anthony Bobbitt multiple times around 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Raleigh Police say an officer witnessed the altercation and fired his weapon after seeing Bobbitt collapse.

The suspect, later identified as Holloman, then got into a vehicle and fled the scene. He was accompanied by a female whose identity was unknown at the time.

Holloman and the woman were located at an apartment complex off Sunnybrook Road around 10 a.m.

It was not immediately clear if the woman, who has not been identified by police, faces any charges.

Bobbitt was transported to WakeMed for treatment of injuries that are serious but not believed to be life-threatening.
