A man accused in the fatal shooting of a Vancouver man found dead on a sidewalk in the Image neighborhood in December made a first appearance Friday in Clark County Superior Court.
Devin D. Schultz-Morrison, 23, appeared on suspicion of second-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Vincent R. Trevino. Police found Trevino’s body, with multiple gunshot wounds, in the early morning of Dec. 30 while responding to a call of gunfire in the 12500 block of Northeast 28th Street.
Multiple .45 caliber shell casings were recovered from the scene, court records say.
Trevino was later identified as one of four suspects in the beating and robbery of 63-year-old Douglas Hodgson that took place hours before Trevino was found dead. His body was found about 2½ miles from Hodgson’s house, according to court records.
Schultz-Morrison was already in custody at the Clark County Jail on unrelated charges when officers arrested him Thursday in the homicide case.
Senior Deputy Prosecutor James Smith said Schultz-Morrison was arrested in April in an unlawful firearm possession case and posted bail. He eventually stopped checking in with supervised release, and when contacted by officers, fled. He was later located in North Dakota and was brought back by a bail bondsman, Smith said.
