Tavon Williams, 25, and Byron Green, 28, were arrested in connection with the March 12 death of 22-year-old Donatello Fenner, who was said to be a ranking member of the Young Gorilla Family gang and was found shot to death in the 2600 block of N. Charles St.Details of the arrest were not immediately available, but they bring, for now, a resolution to one of two recent murders in the Charles Village/Remington area, where homeowners pay extra taxes for private security and street cleaning. Three days after Fenner was killed, 37-year-old Asia Carter was shot in a drive-by shooting at the intersection of N. Howard St. and W. 25th St. Police did not believe those cases were linked.Fenner has eluded serious prison time, but in June 2008, Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III singled him out as a "catalyst for violence" and someone police were watching as part of an increased effort to target the city's most violent people. The Barclay neighborhood, where YGF was said to be based, was the location for 10 killings in 2007.Fenner was charged a few months later with attempted murder, stemming from a May 2008 shooting. The charges were dropped by prosecutors in August 2009, and he was released. In November, he was picked up on an assault charge and was awaiting a March 25 court date. In a recent interview, Fenner's aunt denied that he was a gang member and said he was trying to turn his life around. She said police were harassing him with frequent stops and raids.Court records show Green was charged with attempted first-degree murder and armed carjacking in 2005, charges which were dismissed in 2007. Williams was charged in September 2008 with possessing a handgun in a vehicle, and the charges were later dropped. Williams was awaiting a May trial on drug distribution charges

It's very sad that young men are doing this to each other. It makes me wonder where has the African American community gone wrong, we were once in unity, and now it's every man for themselves. All the killing has got to stop, it's tragic that life can be cut short from the hands of a peer.
