Authorities have arrested a reputed Bloods gang member who is suspected in a string of drive-by shootings in Durham, North Carolina.

A U.S. Marshalls task force arrested 21-year-old Damontez R. Corbitt, who Federal law enforcement sources say, is the primary suspect in a rash of recent drive-by shootings in the city.

Agents arrested Corbitt on outstanding warrants for charges including several counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and discharging a weapon with an occupied dwelling.

The alleged gang member was taken to Durham Police Headquarters for interrogation.

Federal investigators accuse Corbitt of shooting into several vehicles and into a home with people inside including a Feb 19th incident when he allegedly discharged a .32 caliber firearm into an occupied property.

Police also charged Corbitt with causing injury to personal property and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill after firing shots into a vehicle on March 16th.

Police arrested Corbitt last September on multiple counts of assault on a female and one count each of breaking or entering, profane language on a public highway and resisting arrest.

A judge issued another warrant after the he failed to appear for a Feb. 25 court date for the assault charge. Corbitt served six days in Durham jail in for a felony probation violation in 2013.

According to CBS North Carolina, the two female victims in the Feb. 19 incident were also victims in the March 16 incident.
