Fairfax County police have charged a 31-year-old Falls Church man with the Feb. 21 fatal shooting in Centreville.

Officers said Richard Kenneth Pearson IV went to the townhome in the London Towne area on the night that Amaru Amin Shabazz, 37, was killed. Police said Pearson was there to visit someone who lived there.

“Detectives are continuing to investigate the circumstances that led to the shooting but have determined Pearson IV shot Shabazz multiple times inside the home then left prior to officers arriving,” an FCPD news release said today (Monday).

Police charged Pearson on Thursday (March 3) with second-degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He was arrested Friday and taken to the Adult Detention Center and held without bond, police said.

Police officers responded around 10 p.m. on Feb. 21 to a townhouse in the 14800 block of Bodley Square and found Shabazz inside the home with multiple gunshot wounds, the department said in a news release. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Detectives ask anyone who may have information about the shooting to call 703-246-7800, option 2, or to submit tips anonymously, call Crime Solvers by phone – 1-866-411-TIPS (866-411-8477), by text – Type “FCCS” plus tip to 847411, and by web at fairfaxcrimesolvers.org.
