HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) – Breshard Turner, wanted in connection with a homicide in Hampton in 2018, was located in California and is now under arrest, police announced Thursday.
On July 2, Hampton Police provided an update on the case and said that Turner has been extradited back to Hampton where he was served warrants for 2nd degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and concealed weapon.
Turner was taken into custody on June 5 and held in L.A. County Jail until his extradition, according to Hampton Police Sgt. R.C. Williams.
The Newport News Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Task Force assisted in this investigation.
Turner was arrested in connection with the murder of Iquan McClain, a 23-year-old Newport News man, on December 15, 2018.
Officers were called to investigate an afternoon shooting that day in the parking lot of the Family Dollar in the 900 block of Aberdeen Road. McClain was taken to the hospital where he died.
At the time, police said McClain and the suspect knew each other. Last July, police put out warrants for Turner’s arrest.
A second person sought for questioning in the case was not charged in connection with the homicide, Sgt. Williams confirmed.
