Suspect is back in Montgomery

By Clarence Williams

A 3-foot-11-inch man wanted by Montgomery County police as a suspect in a fatal shooting is back in Maryland, after being extradited from Texas.

Henry Chavez, 28, arrived in Montgomery County late Wednesday night, authorities said. He was arrested Feb. 8 in El Salvador on a warrant accusing him of fatally shooting 27-year-old Hamington Luis Ravanales Orozco in May.

Chavez, an American citizen, was being held in Houston after he was captured in San Miguel, El Salvador. Authorities said Chavez, of the 1600 block of Hobart Street in Northwest Washington, was charged with first-degree murder and the use of a handgun in the commission of a violent crime.

Police said Ravanales Orozco, 27, was shot outside of a Silver Spring area apartment building in the 10100 block of Georgia Avenue on May 27.

Chavez is being held without bond and a hearing is scheduled Friday at Rockville District Court.
