Prince George’s County police have arrested and charged two men in connection with a fatal shooting in June that left a 19-year-old dead.

The suspects have been identified as 49-year-old Jeffrey Coachman and 53-year-old Recco Bouknight of Washington, D.C. They are charged with the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Tyzaiah Gaither of Washington, D.C. on June 22 on Naylor Road in Temple Hills.

Gaither was located outside suffering from gunshot wounds. He was pronounced deceased on the scene. The preliminary investigation revealed both suspects shot Gaither multiple times.
