Third person arrested in homicide of Marcellus Green

A third person has been arrested and charged for the 2015 shooting death of Marcellus Green.

Dominique Williams, 22, was taken into custody on Wednesday and charged with first-degree murder while armed. An arrest warrant was issued for Williams in February after two other men were arrested and charged for Green’s death.

Stephen Pugh and Maricco Knight, both 22, have been charged with first-degree murder while armed. The US attorney’s office declined to file charges against Knight in this case and he has been released. Pugh has pled guilty and will be in court again on Sept. 9 for a felony status hearing.

Green, 39, was killed in the 3200 block of 28th St., SE on Sept. 19, 2015. Metropolitan Police heard the sounds of gunshots in the area and found Green suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died.

Williams will be presented in court on Thursday.
