Police on Thursday arrested a man in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred hours earlier inside an apartment at Tyler House, a complex at N. Capitol Street near New York Avenue in Northwest Washington.
George Malik Anderson, 21, of Northwest, was charged with second-degree murder while armed. He is accused of killing Devin Butler, 24, who police said has no fixed address.
The shooting occurred shortly before 2 a.m. on the fourth floor of the building in the 1200 block of N. Capitol Street NW. Police said Butler was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene.
Police did not comment on a possible motive or say why the two men were apparently inside the same apartment. Additional details could be released after Anderson makes his first court appearance, probably on Friday.
