 – A second teenager has been arrested for the murder of an 18-year-old D.C. man who was shot to death a few months after he graduated from high school.

D.C. police say members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force took a 15-year-old Southeast D.C. boy into custody on Tuesday for the deadly shooting of TaQuan Pinkney.

According to Pinkney’s family, he was heading to the store on Sept. 9 when he was shot in the 2800 block of Stanton Road in Southeast D.C. The 18-year-old victim was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Pinkney graduated from Suitland High School in Maryland and was known as a role model to children in his D.C. community as a volunteer with Horton’s Kids, an organization that helps at-risk children to graduate from high school.

Police have charged the 15-year-old suspect with first-degree murder while armed.

Earlier this month, D.C. police also charged a 17-year-old D.C. boy with Pinkney’s murder.
