WASHINGTON (AP) – District of Columbia police have made a second arrest in a fatal shooting that investigators believe was linked to marijuana in the victim’s apartment.
Police said in a news release Sunday that they’ve arrested 53-year-old Eugene Sherman. He’s been charged with first-degree felony murder in the fatal shooting of 37-year-old Matthew Shevlin. Felony murder is a charge that means a person is accused of participating in a felony that led to a murder.
Shevlin was gunned down in January outside his condo in the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood near the Washington Convention Center. According to court documents, police found marijuana inside his apartment. They also found marijuana inside a mason jar carried by the 18-year-old suspected gunman, who’s already been charged.
