2nd suspect in Miles’ shooting held Police arrested Jaevin Bowie on unrelated charges.
Law enforcement officials still are trying to sort through charges for two suspects wanted in connection with the killing of a Fort Wayne Community Schools administrator and coach last month after police released their photos to the media.
Henry E. Underwood, 23, who has no known address, and Jaevin E. Bowie, 20, of Fort Wayne, are being held in the Allen County Lock-Up on unrelated charges to the May 19 homicide of Terrance Miles, although more charges are expected today.
Fort Wayne Police released surveillance photos of two suspects who were with Miles shortly before he was shot to death at 12:18 a.m. May 19 in the 900 block of Francis Street.
Detectives received tips from the public leading to Underwood and Bowie, according to police.
Underwood is in the Allen County Lock-Up on preliminary charges of a felon carrying a handgun with a prior felony conviction within the last 15 years and false informing, although online records indicate murder and probation violation charges are pending. Underwood was stopped by police at around 11:11 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of Terrace Road and Neva Avenue when a Fort Wayne Police Department officer observed a tan 2007 Chevrolet Malibu disregard an automatic signal at Crescent Avenue and St. Joe River Drive.
Police spoke with the driver and a rear-seat passenger, Underwood, who allegedly told police he was Fredrick McGee. When the officer asked Underwood his age, Underwood allegedly replied, “You know how old I am.” The officer recognized Underwood and removed him from the vehicle, revealing a handgun on the floor under the front passenger seat toward the rear of the seat. The driver said the purple Cobra .380-caliber handgun with a round in the magazine was not hers.
Police report Underwood was convicted June 19, 2014, for corrupt business influence.
Bowie was arrested shortly before noon Thursday and is in the Allen County Lock-Up on a preliminary charge of resisting law enforcement, although Bowie initially was arrested on a charge of assisting a criminal.
