Early this morning, the suspect in last Saturday's shooting at an apartment in the 500 block of Ralston Avenue was located in Union City and taken into custody by Belmont PD, culminating an intense 4-day investigation.

On Wednesday 8/9/17 at approximately 12:25AM Belmont Police, assisted by officers from the Union City and BART Police Departments, located 27 year old murder suspect Jovhon Alexander Stewart at the Union City BART Station.  He was taken into custody without incident on a no-bail arrest warrant, in connection with the shooting death of 24 year old DeJohn Jones on Saturday 8/5/17.  The weapon used in the murder, believed to be a semi-automatic handgun, was not recovered.

Stewart was booked into the San Mateo County Jail in Redwood City on charges of Murder and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.  The Belmont Police would like to thank the media for getting this story out, the public who provided tips and leads, and the numerous law enforcement agencies who assisted us during our initial response to and subsequent investigation of this crime.
