Joint Press Release from Commonwealth's Attorney and Charlottesville Police Department


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - On Sunday October 23, Charlottesville Police Officers responded to a shots fired report near the 200 Block of West Main St.  Two individuals were involved in an altercation and Davonn J. Wilson suffered multiple gunshot wounds.  He was later pronounced dead at the UVA Medical Center.

This past Friday, October 28, at approximately 10:00 p.m., Marcel Darell Washington of Charlotte North Carolina was taken into custody without incident.  He was charged with the second degree murder of Mr. Wilson and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony.  Mr. Washington was arrested in Tennessee and extradition proceedings are underway.  He does not yet have an appearance date in Charlottesville General District Court.

The felony warrants were obtained last Tuesday, October 25, and since that date Detectives with the Charlottesville Police Department had been working closely with the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office and the United States Marshall’s Service to locate and arrest Mr. Washington.

While the Charlottesville Police Department and Commonwealth Attorney’s Office understand that there has been significant interest in the status of the investigation, proceeding in a manner that protects the integrity of the case and ensures the safety of all involved is always of paramount importance. 

Arrest warrants are charging documents and not evidence of guilt.  Neither the Charlottesville Police Department nor the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office will have further comment related to this ongoing investigation.  Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 434-977-4000.
