Person of Interest Detained in Mandalay Road Homicide

A person of interest who is believed to have information about the Mandalay Road homicide has been detained in Georgia.

Richmond Police detectives had been looking for Lionel Carter, III, 23, of the 600 block of Westover Hills Boulevard, because they believe he may have information about the fatal shooting of Kadijah N. Stewart.

Stewart, 19, of the 700 block of Luton Lane, was found shot to death inside a vehicle on Jan. 31 in the 2200 block of Mandalay Road.

Carter—who was wanted on several warrants unrelated to this homicide--was arrested without incident in DeKalb County, Georgia, early Sunday morning by the Fugitive Task Force there. He will have an extradition hearing before being transported back to Richmond.

Detectives are still asking anyone with information about this crime to call Detective Anthony Coates at (804) 517-9031 or call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000. Citizens may also text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by the tip. Both Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.
