OXON HILL, Md. (WMAR) — Prince George's County Police have arrested a suspect, wanted for stabbing a man to death over cutting a line at an Oxon Hill Popeyes.

Earlier this week, police identified 30-year-old Ricoh McClain as the suspect, and charged him with first and second degree murder of 28-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis.

Investigators tracked McClain down at a home on Nova Avenue in Capitol Heights, where it’s believed he knew someone at the house.

The incident happened around 7 p.m. on November 4 in the 6200 block of Livingston Road.

Police say McClain approached Davis after he had cut in front of several customers waiting in line for the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich.

The two men then got into a brief verbal argument inside the restaurant, and then got out of the line and went outside.

About 15 seconds later, police say McClain stabbed Davis one time in the upper body killing him.

Police were able to recover the knife at the crime scene.

An officer was able to positively identify McClain on restaurant surveillance, based on past run-ins with McClain.
