Richmond Police has arrested a suspect in the Sept. 22 murder of Maurquan Brown.

Russell Lamont Johnson, whom the Department listed as wanted yesterday, turned himself in at Richmond Police’s Third Precinct earlier this afternoon. He was taken into custody without incident.

Johnson, 28, is charged with murder in the Sept. 22 fatal shooting of Brown in the 1300 block of Coalter Street. Brown was found shot to death around 6:30 a.m. outside an apartment building.
