Centreville Man Is Charged with Mount Vernon Murder

Fairfax County police have arrested Jeremiah Mouzon, 20, of Centreville, in connection with the Dec. 30 murder of an Alexandria man. Detectives from the Major Crimes Bureau began investigating, early that morning, after receiving a report about two people who were shot in a residential neighborhood in Mount Vernon.

Officers responded to the 7900 block of Sausalito Place around 2:30 a.m. and found Kamren Quick, 18, of Alexandria, outside. Police say he was suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, and officers removed Quick to a safe area nearby for treatment by members of the Fire and Rescue Department. Afterward, he was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries that were later determined to not be life-threatening.

However, inside a home, police discovered the body of Jayden Quick, 20, of Alexandria, dead from an apparent gunshot wound. According to police, detectives do not believe this crime was a random act of violence; and after the incident, they worked extensively to identify the suspect. Once they did so and determined he was Mouzon, detectives from the Fugitive Unit began tracking his whereabouts.

Through their investigative leads, they received information that he was in Maryland. Detectives coordinated his arrest with the Prince George’s County Police Department, and Mouzon was safely taken into custody by police there, pending his extradition back to Fairfax County. He was charged with second-degree murder, malicious shooting and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
