HOPEWELL, Va. (AP) - A Petersburg man has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of a man who was found mortally wounded inside a Hopewell home.

Hopewell police said Daemon Dashawn Clarke was apprehended Saturday by members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force. Clarke is accused of killing Marcus Parker, 32, of Petersburg, who was found with life-threatening injuries Thursday after police responded to a report of a person being shot. Parker later died at VCU Medical Center in Richmond.

Clarke has been charged with first-degree murder, felony use of a firearm and possession of a firearm by a felon.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that police have not released a potential motive in the killing or said whether Clarke and Parker knew each other.
