Police arrested the man found shot Friday afternoon in a Durham barber shop.
Investigators said Jacinto Barr and Freddie Cheek, both 33, were involved in the shooting in the parking lot of a strip mall at 1418 Avondale Drive.
Barr, who suffered a gunshot wound to the shoulder, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of heroin with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was booked into the Durham County Jail under $250,000 bond after he was treated and released from the hospital.
Cheek, who told police that he was shot at and returned fire, was taken into custody on Friday but never charged.
Barr was convicted in the 2002 murder of Ronald Sherman Johnson on a count of second-degree murder, with a sentence of as much as 28 years. Superior Court Judge Orlando Hudson reduced that to a lesser offense of voluntary manslaughter.
He was released in December 2010.
