A second suspect in the 2009 murder of Deuante Ray has been arrested, police say.

Terrell Patton, 19, was arrested Saturday on unrelated charges, but police then identified him as the suspect wanted on an outstanding warrant for the 2009 murder.

Patton was charged with first degree murder while armed for the shooting of Ray, who was 20 years old.

Less than a month after the murder, 19-year-old Emanuel Johnson was arrested and charged with murder in the case.

According to the police statement, "On Friday, October 30, 2009, at approximately 12:36 am, units from the Sixth District responded to the rear of 1109 48th Street, NE for the sounds of gunshots. Upon their arrival, they located the victim lying in the alley in the rear of 1107 48th Street, NE.

"The victim was unconscious and suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Personnel from the DC Fire and Medical Services responded to the scene and determined that the victim had no signs consistent with life and his remains were later transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner."
