Suspect arrested in connection with fatal stabbing at Popeye’s in Oxon Hill

News Release, Prince George’s County Police Department

UPDATE November 14, 2019: On Wednesday, the Prince George’s County Police Department’s fugitive unit located and arrested 30-year-old Ricoh McClain. McClain is charged with fatally stabbing 28-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis outside of an Oxon Hill fast-food restaurant last week.

The investigators tracked down McClain at a home on Nova Avenue in Capitol Heights. Preliminarily, it’s believed McClain was the acquaintance of a person staying at that residence.

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.

McClain is charged with first-degree murder, 2nd-degree murder, 1st-degree assault, 2nd-degree assault, and reckless endangerment. A court commissioner ordered him held on a no-bond status at the Department of Corrections.
