Meeko Carraway and Darrel Hendy were arguing the afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 24, the day that Hendy was shot several times and killed, a D.C. Superior Court arrest warrant for Carraway alleges.

Carraway, 18, is charged with murder in Hendy’s death. He is expected in court January 11, 2011 for a felony status conference.

WUSA9 reported that the apartment building outside of which Hendy was shot was locked down for four hours while police searched for suspects. Carraway was identified by four witnesses who saw him near the scene or heard the argument between Carraway and Hendy, according to court documents.

A building resident, who knew Hendy, told 9 NEWS NOW “He was a good guy trying to turn his life around. I can’t believe it. It’s crazy.” She asked not to be identified.

Another resident who also asked for anonymity told 9 NEWS NOW as he peered down from his window into the courtyard teeming with police activity “The police doesn’t come around here and things aren’t going to get better until they do.”

One of the men detained for questioning attempted to jump from an eleven story balcony say police. At this point, no motive has been established for the shooting.” WUSA9 reported.

Hendy, a 29-year-old Bowie resident, is survived by a daughter, according to his obituary. His brother, Jeremiah Hendy, is a star football player at Bowie High.
