HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

A deadly shooting at a Henrico recording studio is closer to being solved with a second suspect behind bars.

21-year-old Ja'Juan Munford was shot and killed during a showcase for up and coming talent at Phully Loaded Studio in the 8500 block of Glazebrook Avenue off Staples Mill Road on May 11. The studio's owner, James Brayboy, said security guards kicked out two men just before the shooting.

A few days later Henrico Police arrested Ernest Shavez Pressley in the death and released the photo of another, unidentified, suspect.

Tips helped police identify the man as Andre Mattox, who was arrested during a traffic stop on Accommodation street last week by Richmond Police. Henrico Police call Mattox a person of interest in Munford's death and have charged him with firearm by felon.
