Man charged in fatal 2007 shooting

A 20-year-old Southeast Washington man has been charged in a fatal shooting that occurred almost three years ago, D.C. police said.

Officers said Gerald Anderson was arrested Saturday in connection with the death of David Mayo, who was found fatally shot Nov. 1, 2007.

Mayo, 37, was found shortly before 1 a.m. in the 600 block of Park Road NW and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He lived in the 800 block of 46th Street NE, police said.

Police said Anderson was arrested by members of the homicide branch and Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force.

He was charged on a Superior Court arrest warrant with felony murder while armed, police said.
