Last week, US Marshals Task Force arrested Zeer Nifis Cannady for his connection to the fatal shooting.

Witnesses told police that Cannady and two other gunmen entered McGhee's home on South 13th Street to commit robbery and that's when shots were fired.

McGhee later died at the hospital. Terae Kareem Graham was also shot during the incident, but survived.

Officials are still searching for a third suspect.
