A fourth man has been arrested in connection with the 2015 shooting death of a 64-year-old man in the Alexandria area of Fairfax County. 

Officers were called to a home on North King's Highway on March 26, 2015 for a report of a person who had been shot. When they arrived, they found Santos Rafael Zelaya suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He died from his injuries at the hospital. 

Police have arrested four people in the past year in connection with Zelaya's death.

The most recent arrest was made Tuesday. Fairfax County police say 23-year-old Eric Howard Buckner of Alexandria has been charged with second-degree murder.  

Gregory Brown, Niziah Williams and Timothy Washington were arrested last year. All three were charged with murder.
