In May, 25-year-old Derrick Nathaniel Meade was shot and killed in the driveway of the Clifton Hunt home where he lived. And this week, a Fairfax County grand jury has indicted the man accused of taking his life.
He is David Marsden Logan, 35, of Clifton Hunt Drive, and he was indicted on charges of murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. Adding further to the tragedy is that the victim was the father of Logan's sister's children.
IN A MAY 16 affidavit for a search warrant to hopefully retrieve the suspected murder weapon from Logan's car, county police Det. Christopher Flanagan provided details of the incident. He noted that police were called to the home where both men lived, May 15, around 6:23 p.m., for a report of a person shot.
According to the affidavit, responding officers came upon a woman waving her arms at the bottom of the driveway to the home. They also found Meade lying face up on the driveway and bleeding. The detective wrote that the woman allegedly told police that he was shot by her own brother, Logan.
Flanagan stated that the victim had a gunshot wound to the back and died of his injuries before he could be transported to a hospital. Calling it both a "domestic-related dispute" and a homicide, police said Meade was arguing with a female resident in the driveway when Logan reportedly approached and shot him with a silver-colored handgun.
Police wrote that Logan fled the scene in a 1987 Lincoln, but they apprehended him 90 minutes later in the parking lot of the Centreville Multiplex Cinemas. The next day, they executed the search warrant and seized a silver, Llama .9 mm semi-automatic gun from his car.
He's still being held without bond in the Adult Detention Center. And following his indictment Monday by the grand jury, he's scheduled to enter a plea, Oct. 12, in Circuit Court.
