Police say Travis Everett Hoskins, 19, and Oliver Gregson Davis, 29, were arguing about food when Hoskins retrieved a gun and shot Davis.

When Prince George's County Police responded to the call about a shooting in the 700 block of Glacier Avenue in Capitol Heights at about 1:54 p.m. Saturday, they found Davis fatally shot inside the home the two men shared.

Hoskins was gone, but he was arrested Sunday in D.C. He has been charged with first-degree murder.

Extradition to Prince George’s County is pending.
