Alexandria Police have charged a second suspect with the homicide of Leon Williams, who died from injuries sustained during a shooting that occurred on Belle Pre Way on October 7, 2015.

James Bolar, 33, of Lorton, was arrested for Murder and Use of a Firearm Commission of a Felony on October 13, 2016. He is being held without bond in the William G. Truesdale Detention Center in Alexandria.

“I am really proud of our officers and detectives. We have been working with the community for the past year and half to identify those responsible for this criminal act”, said Acting Chief of Police David Huchler. “While we have already made one arrest in this case, this second arrest exemplifies our relentless pursuit of justice.”

The Alexandria Police Department would also like to thank the United States Marshall Service for their assistance in the investigation.
