A 22-year-old man was shot dead in a parking lot last June and now Rochester Police say a parolee currently in jail has been identified as a suspect.
Jorge Luis Bonilla, 22, and a 35-year-old man were shot in upstate New York on June 8, 2020, police said. An unknown vehicle took them to a local hospital and Bonilla was pronounced dead. The second man went into surgery and survived the attack.
After conducting their investigation, Rochester Police said they identified Parolee Treyquan Davis as the suspect in the killing of Bonilla.
On Dec. 2, Davis was involved in a car chase with New York State Police, WHAM reported. When Davis was caught, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated and other traffic violations, police said.
Since that arrest, Davis has been in custody due to a parole violation, authorities said.
WHAM reported that an indictment was unsealed and Davis was charged with second-degree murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
The December incident is not the first time Davis faced a murder charge, police said.
Police say they arrested Davis when he was 15 years old for allegedly shooting and killing Alexander Marquez in 2012. At the time, he faced a second-degree murder charge.
Davis pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter, according to police, and he served 40 months in a juvenile detention facility.
Davis remains in custody and his next court date has not been announced.
