NEWPORT NEWS -- A nearly 18-month murder investigation has ended with an arrest, Newport News police say.

Timothy Josaahn Watson, 22, is charged with shooting Quwantrell Miles, 25, in March 2010.

Miles was found dead on the sidewalk outside Pinedale Manor Apartments, several blocks from his home in Adams Drive.

Watson was arrested Thursday on charges of murder and use of a firearm.

Information about a motive for the killing wasn't released.

Four days earlier, Watson was shot in a drive-by shooting at Pilot House and Jefferson Avenue. He was a passenger in a red SUV.

Then, in April, Watson was charged with shooting two people after an argument at a club on Wythe Creek Road in Poquoson.
