The man arrested on weapons charges connected to the shooting of Breyona McMillian last month has now been charged with murder.
Saeve Evans, 30, was originally charged with unlawful possession of a firearm on Nov. 30, but the charges were upgraded to second-degree murder while armed over the weekend.
Prior to his Evans’ arrest, Interim Police Chief Peter Newsham said Evans was seen on video surveillance shooting into a crowd but could not confirm if he filed the shot that killed 16-year-old McMillian.
Evans has been held without bail since his initial arrest. He is due to be presented in D.C. Superior Court Monday afternoon.
