    What to Know

    • Police arrested a suspect in 22-year-old Shakkan Elliot-Tibbs' murder.

    • Rashad Lonzell Adkins, 21, of Alexandria, is being held without bond in an Alexandria detention center.

    • The arrest marks the last remaining homicide of 2015 for the Alexandria Police Department.

    A jury convicted a Virginia man in the murder of a man who was on his way to meet his mother at a Metro station, according to the Alexandria Commonwealth's Attorney.

    Shakkan Elliott-Tibbs, 22, got into an argument and then a fight with Rashad Lonzell Adkins July 2, 2015, on in the 700 block of North Fayette Street. Adkins pulled out a .40-caliber handgun and shot Tibbs at least four times, according to the commonwealth's attorney.

    Tibbs was taken to a hospital where he died.

    A jury convicted Adkins of second-degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a murder. The jury recommended 40 years in prison for the murder conviction and three years in prison for the firearms conviction. A judge will decide the sentence at a hearing.
