The suspects were identified on Tuesday, April 20, the same day police held a press conference with the victim’s mother, Cheryl LouAllen, and other relatives to share photos and a video of the five suspects wanted in connection with the fatal shooting and to ask the public’s help to identify them.

Jahmar Latavern Graves, a 34-year-old father of three, was killed in the shooting, and his 22-year-old colleague, who has not been identified, was injured by gunfire. The two were visiting Manassas to work on a roofing job, family members said. They went out to the mall that Friday night with a third man, according to Prince William County Police Chief Peter Newsham, who led the April 20 press conference.

At some point the three men got into an argument with a group of five people while still inside the mall, Newsham said.

The two groups were not known to each other before the encounter. At about 11 p.m. that night, the two groups met again in the mall parking lot and gunshots were fired toward the victims. 

One suspect fired gunshots before the group got into their vehicle – a black BMW with temporary Virginia tags. A second suspect then fired gunshots from the vehicle as it was leaving the parking lot, Newsham said.

Following the press conference, information was received that ultimately led the detectives to the suspects’ identities, Perok said in a press release.

Detectives located and charged two of the suspects -- both 17, one male and one female, both of Woodbridge -- and obtained arrest warrants for two adult suspects.
