An alleged accomplice of University of North Carolina star running back Derrick Fenner in a drug-related slaying has been extradicted to Prince George's County to face murder charges, authorities said.
Tyrone Anthony Davis, 21, wanted for first-degree murder in Hyattsville, was turned over to the county sheriff's department Friday, said District police spokeswoman Shannon Cockett. Davis was arrested by D.C. police Thursday at his Southwest Washington home, Cockett said.
Davis and Fenner, who went to high school together in Oxon Hill, are accused of participating in a Memorial Day weekend shootout over drug trafficking turf.
Killed in the incident was Hyattsville resident Marsellus Leach, 19, who investigators said was a bystander.
Fenner, 20, surrendered to authorities June 2 and was released on $100,000 bond on July 15. His trial is set for Oct. 26 in Prince George's County Circuit Court.
Cockett said officers found Davis behind his apartment building Thursday morning.
In addition to the fugitive charge, Davis was charged with cocaine possession with intent to distribute, Cockett said.
Davis is also wanted by Prince George's County police in the July 29 kidnaping and armed robbery of two men in Oxon Hill, county police Cpl. Bruce Gentile said.
Hyattsville police obtained a first-degree murder warrant for Davis July 24. Detectives received an anonymous tip shortly after the May 23 killing and, with assistance from District police, began monitoring him.
