A third suspect has been arrested in the murder of Jose Hewitt last Wednesday on Pine Avenue in Niagara Falls.

Devante Beasley, 18, (pictured above)   has been charged with second degree Murder, first degree Robbery and Burglary for his part in Hewitt's death.  

 Earlier this week police also arrested 22 year old Shequan Herbert and 18 year old Stephanie Raymond, (below) both of Niagara Falls.  They're now charged with second degree murder and first degree robbery.

Police say they believe they struck Hewitt in the head, likely with a pistol, before robbing two men in an upstairs apartment. Hewitt was left bloodied in the hall downstairs.  

Police say the three robbed two men in the apartment at gunpoint and fled out of the rear of the building to a vehicle waiting outside.

The robbery victims called police and when police arrived at the scene, they could not get in through the front door.  Police made their way through the back, called paramedics, but Hewitt succumbed to his injuries before emergency crews could arrive.
