York City detectives have arrested a third man in the July 19 homicide of Dashaun Davis, fatally shot while sitting in his car.

Naquan Coakley, 22, of 1155 E. King St. in York City, was arrested without incident Tuesday afternoon and later arraigned at the county's central booking unit, city police Capt. Tim Utley said.

Coakley, known as "Squeeze," was committed to York County Prison Wednesday morning without bail, charged with homicide, robbery, conspiracy to commit both charges and attempted robbery, records state.

Utley said detectives believe Coakley, Jeffrey Reid Jr. and Malik "Problem" Williams intended to rob Davis, and that Reid shot the man.

No other homicide arrests are expected at this time, the captain said. But he noted the investigation remains ongoing.

Williams, 18, of 766 W. Market St., Apt. 6, also remains in York County Prison without bail, charged with homicide, robbery and conspiracy to commit both charges.

Found in Virginia: Reid, 27, of 244 S. Duke St., was tracked down and arrested Monday in Richmond, Va., by members of the U.S. Marshals Service.

He remains in custody in that city, awaiting extradition on his charges of homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide, being a convicted felon in illegal possession of a firearm, and three counts each of robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

Arrested in Virginia with Reid was current or former girlfriend Karina DeJesus of Harrisburg, who Utley said will be extradited back to York County and charged with hindering the apprehension of a suspect.

She is accused of helping Reid hide from police.

The homicide: Davis, 23, was fatally shot in his car about 11 p.m. July 19 in the 200 block of Union Street, just around the corner from his family's Juniper Street home.

Officers responding to the scene seized and towed a blue Cadillac found parked in the area, which witnesses said Reid was driving just prior to the fatal shooting, according to police.

Reid told a witness "the murder weapon" was in the Cadillac "and that his DNA and fingerprints would be found on it," documents state. Several people heard him making the statement, and also heard him claim he was being framed for the slaying by "Problem" and "Squeeze," according to documents.

Handgun found: Inside the Cadillac — which is registered to Reid's brother — police found a .380-caliber handgun and ammunition, documents state.

Police also confirmed Reid is a suspect in a fire investigation that is unrelated to the homicide case.

The three-unit apartment building where Reid lived was damaged by a fire that erupted there about midnight July 21, city fire officials have said. The bulk of the fire was contained to Reid's first-floor apartment.

Police allege Reid, Coakley and Williams were part of a robbery crew that was thwarted twice the night of July 19 before Davis was killed.
