Davis was found dead of a gunshot wound on Nov. 11 in a parked car in the 2800 block of West Boulevard, police said.

With help from the FBI, police arrested Jadarius Irving McCall, 26, without incident. McCall was charged with murder and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

A woman at the scene told investigators she was in the vehicle with Davis when the shooting occurred and she had been shot in the hand. Medic took her to Carolinas Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Police have not released the woman’s name, and it remains unclear what relationship the woman had to Davis.

In late April, police identified McCall as a suspect in the killing and said he should be considered armed and dangerous. Police have not said whether McCall and Davis knew each other.
