    Police have made two more arrests in the March 14 shooting of Olu Williams.

    Just two weeks after police arrested a suspect on murder charges in connection with the death of 31-year-old Akinwole Olu Williams, two more arrests have been made.

    Williams, who often got rides home from co-workers, took the Metro March 14 and was shot right outside of his apartment in the 1000 block of 44th Street NE. He was transported to a hospital and later pronounced dead.

    Earlier this month, Deandre Shaheed of Northeast was charged with first degree murder while armed.

    Police announced two more arrests were made June 17 - 20-year-old Floyd Neal and 19-year-old Lafeyette Robinson, both of Northeast, were also charged with first degree murder while armed.

    Williams' mother spoke with News4 earlier this month, pleading for justice in her son's brutal murder.

    "I’m still hurting because no matter what this isn’t going to bring him back," Williams' mother told News4. "They took something that is irreplaceable that no one has the right to do."
