RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Richmond Police arrested one suspect and released surveillance video of another in a September homicide.

Gregory R. Carter, 27, was found dead in his vehicle in the 5300 block of Newton Road shortly after 3 a.m. on September 14.

Police arrested Jason A. Goodson, 32, of Chesterfield and charged him with conspiracy to commit murder. Police believe he met Carter earlier in the evening in downtown Richmond, with another man.

Richmond detectives have not said which suspect is the alleged murderer. They say they'll have more information to release once they identify and find that second suspect. Police say the man and Goodson are known to frequent Club Aurora and Club Paradise. They met up with Carter at one of those clubs and he was giving them a ride home to the east end.

Richmond Detective Jamie Baynes believes Carter, Goodson and the other suspect knew each other before the early morning hours of September 14. Goodson hasn't told detectives who is in the surveillance footage with him and which one of them may have fired the fatal shots.

"We have no idea why this happened," Baynes said. "Mr. Goodson says it is a surprise to him. I don't necessarily believe him but that's what we're trying to find out now."

That information might give Carter's loved ones some peace.

"Mr. Carter has a very big family," Baynes told us. "He has a brother here, a sister in law, his mother, a lot of cousins. People came down from New York when he was killed to help his mother out and they just really need the public's help."

Police released surveillance video of the remaining suspect in the hopes the public would help locate him. Police say the suspect is shown in the video wearing a white baseball hat and walking with another man.

Baynes says investigators found Goodson through people who were at the clubs that night. He says all they need is a name for that other suspect. If you know him, call crime stoppers at 780-1000.
