Popeyes Stabbing Suspect Arrested

Prince George’s County Police have arrested the man suspected of a deadly stabbing at a Popeyes restaurant in Oxon Hill.  30-year-old Ricoh McClain was tracked down at a home on Nova Avenue in Capitol Heights. Police believe McClain was the acquaintance of a person staying at that residence.

He is accused of killing 28-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis in the restaurant parking lot on November 4th.  McClain is charged with first degree murder, 2nd degree murder, 1st degree assault, 2nd degree assault, and reckless endangerment. He’s being held on a no-bond status.

On November 4th, at approximately 7:00 pm, patrol officers were called to the fast food restaurant in the 6200 block of Livingston Road for the report of a fight. They discovered Davis outside in the parking lot suffering from a single stab wound. He died a short time later.

The preliminary investigation reveals McClain and the victim got into a brief verbal argument after the victim cut in front of several customers waiting to order food. They both then got out of the line, walked out of the front door together and McClain immediately stabbed Davis. McClain then fled from the area.
