Over a span of nine months, Metropolitan police arrested four people in connection to a homicide that happened on Oct. 13, 2015. The last arrest was made on July 18, according to D.C. police.

On Nov. 2, 2015, an adult male from Southeast D.C., whose identity has not been released, was arrested and charged with the second-degree murder of Clark while armed, according to police.

On May 18, two additional arrests were made in connection with the homicide of Clark. Tavon Felton, 19, Northeast D.C. and Wade Rashod Wilson, 20, Southeast D.C., were arrested and charged with first-degree felony murder while armed, police said.

The most recent arrest occurred on July 18 when authorities arrested Ameesha Gray, 22, Southeast D.C., for suspected involvement in the murder of Clark. Gray was arrested and charged with first-degree felony murder while armed, police reported.
