This story has been updated from its original version.

Five suspects—including two men and a woman from Detroit, Michigan—have been charged in the Jan. 8 homicide of a Warrenton man inside his apartment.

Fabian Sosa, 27, was found dead of gunshot wounds in his residence on Jackson Street after police responded to an emergency call around 4 a.m. Two other men were taken to area hospitals with life-threatening wounds, according to the Warrenton Police Department.

Two women were charged Monday in the targeted attack. Makoya Denham, 21, of Detroit was charged with accessory to murder after the fact and Emily Race, 19, of Warrenton was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.

Denham and Race had been incarcerated on unrelated charges; Denham in a local regional detention facility and Race in a detention facility in another state, according to the Warrenton PD.

On Tuesday, Jan. 14, Jaden Lawrence Staples, 18, of Detroit was charged with accessory to commit murder after the fact. Also charged was Terrell Jonathan Tucker, 20, of Woodstock, Virginia, with accessory to murder after the fact.

Both Staples and Tucker are in custody and are being held in an out-of-state detention facility.

Alexander Golden, 18, of Detroit, Michigan, is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and is still wanted. He was taken into custody in Detroit, Warrenton Police announced Wednesday night.

Golden turned himself into authorities and will remain in custody pending extradition back to Virginia, police said. Warrenton is located more than 500 miles from Detroit.

Warrenton Deputy Police Chief Arthur Mellon declined to answer questions about a potential motive for last week’s homicide and shooting, citing the ongoing investigation.

“However, we believe this was an isolated incident and we expect to make more arrests in reference to this incident,” he said.

The homicide is being actively investigated with assistance from Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office, Virginia State Police and the FBI. Have a tip? Contact 540/347-1100. Callers can remain anonymous.
