Police make arrest in deadly Capitol Heights shooting; search continues for another suspect

- Police have made an arrest in the Capitol Heights, Md. shooting that left two high school students dead and four other people injured.

According to Prince George's County police, 22-year-old Bravon Freeman has been charged with first- and second-degree murder in connection to the fatal shooting of 14-year-old Todd Webb in Capitol Heights early Sunday morning.

Police are also searching for the gunman who took the life of 18-year-old Brian Davis. He was killed in a separate shooting a few minutes earlier at around the same area where Webb was killed. Davis is the nephew of a FOX 5 employee.

Police said a total of six people were shot at around 2:45 a.m. Sunday in the 6800 block of Walker Mill Road. The six shooting victims and Freeman were among a group of people who were gathered outside of an apartment building for a dice game.

"During the course of that game, an unknown individual shot into the crowd of individuals playing dice," said Prince George's County Police Maj. Robert Brewer.

Police said Davis was killed in this particular shooting.

Investigator said a short time later, it is believed Freeman went inside the apartment building, retrieved a gun and then shot and killed Webb.

"A short time later, we discovered Mr. Freeman shot Mr. Webb and then began to assault Mr. Webb after shooting him," said Brewer.

Freeman was arrested at the scene. He is being held without bond.

Police said detectives are continuing to investigate what led up to the violence.
