Durham police arrested Lawrence Alvin Lovett Jr., 17, early this morning in connection with the slaying of Eve Carson. Police said they plan to charge him with first-degree murder.

Lovett was arrested without incident in the Hope Valley Farms subdivision of South Durham. Police had been in the area since midnight.

Two days after police released security photos showing a suspect in a convenience store, a tip led them to Demario James Atwaterr, 21, of Durham. Police arrested him outside a home at 1007 Rosedale Ave. about 5 a.m. Wednesday. In the afternoon, he was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of Carson, UNC-Chapel Hill's student body president.

Police did not say who they think fired the shots.
