Two men from Washington, D.C., were arrested in connection with a Forestville homicide that took place early Monday.

Alex Marshall, 22, and Dominick Payne, 19, were arrested in connection with the death of Dalonte Allen Jackson, 25, of Fort Washington, said Lt. William Alexander, a Prince George’s County police spokesman.

Police responded at about 3 a.m. Monday to reports of a shooting at the 3200 block of Walters Lane at a BP gas station. When officers arrived, they discovered Jackson inside the gas station suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. He was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to a police spokesman.

Preliminary investigation into the homicide led police to believe Jackson’s death was the result of a drug-related robbery, Alexander said. As of now, Payne and Marshall are the only two suspects in the case, he said.

Payne was arrested Monday near the scene of the crime and is being held at the county Department of Corrections with a no bond status. He has been charged with first- and second-degree murder, Alexander said. Marshall was arrested Tuesday in the District and is awaiting extradition to Prince George’s, where he also faces first- and second-degree murder charges, Alexander said.

As of Wednesday afternoon, neither of the arrested men had lawyers assigned to them, according to online court records.
