Falls Church VA Sept 20 2020
A 28-year-old man was charged in the killing of a security guard at a Falls Church nightclub earlier in the month, police said.
Elser Galeano Herrera of Fairfax was arrested at his sister’s home in Mississippi on Thursday, following the fatal shooting of Geovanny Alexander Mejia Castro of Oxon Hill at the Diva Lounge in the 6700 block of Wilson Boulevard on Sept. 11, Falls Church police said.
Herrera is expected to be extradited to Virginia.
Police said they believe the killing was in retaliation for an earlier assault at the nightclub that did not involve Castro.
Herrera has been charged with first-degree murder.
