NORFOLK, Va. (DC News Now) — Police said Thursday that they arrested three men who were responsible for the murder of a 20-year-old college student from Prince George’s County who attended Norfolk State University (NSU).

The Norfolk Police Department (NPD) said the men killed Jahari George of Accokeek, Md. on Sept. 2, 2023. Officers received a report that someone had been shot in the 2700 block of Gate House Rd., near Colchester Crescent. When they arrived, they found George. He died at the hospital.

The people arrested for his murder are:

  • Marquas L. Gregg, 21

  • Camari L. Warren, 18

  • Cameron C. Brown, 18

Each man faces charges of second-degree murder, conspiracy, and use of a firearm. As of Dec. 1, all of them were being held without bond.

NPD said members of the Richmond Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Gregg in Richmond, Va. Members of the task force and the Norfolk Police Department took Warren and Brown into custody in Portsmouth, Va.

According to George’s LinkedIn profile, he graduated from Suitland High School in 2021 and was studying at NSU to be an electrical engineer.

An online account set up for George’s parents shortly after his death said: “Jahari was a wonderful young man with an amazing light. He was extremely compassionate, loving and caring. All those that knew him, loved him. He was a true bright star.”

NSU shared a statement on its Facebook page Thursday which said, in part:

The campus community is still mourning the loss of Mr. George, and we hope his family and the NSU community can find solace in knowing the individuals responsible will be brought to justice. The university family is urged to continue to maintain our culture of care as we collectively work through this difficult time. Plans are under way to provide a fitting tribute to Jahari and to memorialize his time here at Norfolk State.
