The Alexandria Police Department announced Tuesday it has made an arrest in connection with the murder of Shakeel Baldon last month.

Clarence Terry, 53, of Alexandria, was charged with murder on June 27. He is being held without bond in the William G. Truesdale Detention Center.

Baldon, 47, was found on the 6100 block of Lincolnia Road on May 5 suffering from an upper body trauma. He was transported to the hospital, where he later died.

The slaying was the second of three to take place in Alexandria so far this year. The first took place in April, when Melaku Abraha was assaulted and robbed on the 200 block of S. Alfred St. and later died of his injuries.

On June 8, Pierre Clark, 28, became the city’s third homicide victim of the year after he died from multiple gunshot wounds on the 1000 block of Montgomery St.

Police announced April 12 that George McGee II, 22, of Capitol Heights, Md., was charged in connection with the murder of Abraha. Clark’s murder remains unsolved.

Anyone with further information about this investigation is asked to contact Detective Loren King with the Alexandria Police Department at 703-746-6689.
