Police have made a second arrest for Matthew Shevlin’s murder in January.
On Saturday, police arrested 53-year old Eugene Ledex Sherman of Southeast, and charged him with first-degree murder.
Matthew Shevlin, 37, was found on Jan. 22 at approximately 9:52 a.m. in the 400 block of M Street, NW. When police arrived they found Shevlin suffering from a gunshot wound.
Police had been searching for the second suspect for months, who they said was seen entering Shevlin’s apartment on security cameras.
The first suspect, 18-year old David Davalier Harvey was arrested on Jan. 28. He was charged with first-degree murder while armed and will next appear in court on June 16. Upon searching Harvey at the scene of Shevlin’s death, police found a loaded handgun in his pants, multiple rounds of ammunition and a mason jar filled with a “green weed substance.” Harvey was arrested for carrying a pistol without a license, but the charge was later upgraded to first-degree murder while armed.
Sherman will appear in court on April 25.
