A 27-year-old man was charged with first -degree murder in connection with a September shooting death that investigators said followed a botched robbery.
Prince George’s County police investigators said on Thursday that Walker Davis had been wanted since October in connection with the slaying of Karria Mary Suggs, 51, in Temple Hills. He had been a fugitive, according to a police spokeswoman, who said authorities arrested him on Tuesday in Roanoke.
On Sept. 17 around 10 p.m., authorities said officers found Suggs suffering from gunshot wounds in an apartment in the 4700 block of 23rd Parkway. She was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
A man was also shot in the apartment but he survived his injuries, according to a department press release.
The release said detectives believed the shooting was not random and a preliminary investigation revealed it stemmed from a robbery attempt.
Two other men — David Benjamin Neal, 27, and Delonte Murphy — were also arrested in connection with the shooting, said Cpl. Maria McKinney, a spokeswoman for the department. Police said Neal was arrested at his home on Sept. 25 and charged with first- and second-degree murder and a gun charge, and that Murphy was arrested on Dec. 21 and charged with first-degree murder, attempted first degree murder, first degree assault and other related charges
