VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Two of three suspects accused in a deadly shooting at a Virginia Beach business are now behind bars.
Virginia Beach Police arrested 23-year-old Dwayne Tyjuan Riley with the help of Norfolk SWAT just one day after arresting Tommie Cherry, 40. Both have been charged with second-degree murder, use of a firearm and conspiracy to violate the Drug Act.
Cherry was arrested Tuesday, May 1 at 12:15 p.m. on I-664 near I-64 in Chesapeake. According to Virginia Beach Police spokeswoman Grazia Moyers, the Newport News Police Department assisted in the arrest.
Investigators say Cherry, Riley and another man are responsible for the death of 43-year-old Jackie Delice. He was found by emergency crews in a business located in the 4600 block of Pembroke Lake Circle around 11 p.m. on April 22. The business is a recording studio, but police say the business has no known name.
A viewer told WAVY.com she was driving on I-664, Tuesday, when a police officer on a motorcycle turned on his lights. She says suddenly three undercover police cars also turned on their lights, stopping traffic for a short time, including a light colored SUV. She says when they approached the SUV, police had their vests on and guns drawn.
Investigators say they found Cherry and a woman in the SUV. They say the woman was arrested on charges that are not related to Delice's death.
Investigators are still searching for 18-year-old Terrell Antonio Pugh.
Moyers says there are outstanding warrants on file for second-degree murder, use of a firearm and conspiracy to violate the Drug Act.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Pugh is asked to contact the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP or text VBTIP to CRIMES (274697).
