Authorities arrested a validated gang member early Tuesday morning in connection with a shooting at a housing complex late last month. 

According to the Cathryn Lindsay with Wilmington police, Hakiem Sherif Williams, 20, was arrested around 1:35 a.m. following a traffic stop near the intersection of South Third and Church streets. He's charged with assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill, among other charges. 

He was given a $260,000 bond.

Authorities believe Williams is responsible for the shooting of a 39-year-old man on September 27 in the 100 block of East Plaza off Willard Street. That's in the Houston Moore housing complex.
