FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Central Precinct detectives late last night arrested 14-year-old Donquise Alexander on a charge of criminal homicide for the July 8th fatal shooting of 14-year-old Vincent Lewis outside an apartment building at 1611 6th Avenue North.

Three weeks of continuous investigation by Detective Robert Anderson and his colleagues, which included numerous interviews, led to the identification of Alexander as the suspected gunman. Upon learning of last evening’s issuance of a Juvenile Court arrest order, Alexander’s mother surrendered her son to detectives at 11 p.m.

The investigation into the homicide is continuing. Robbery may have been a motive.
