Shaquan Darnell "Q" Parker, 23, of 302 Olive St. in Spring Lake, is charged with first-degree murder in the July 19 homicide of Carey Terelle McLean, who was shot and killed in the 400 block of D Street. 

Parker was apprehended at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Victory Chapel Church, located on North Bragg Boulevard. Investigators said they responded to the church after receiving a Crime Stoppers tip about Parker being there. He was taken into custody without incident.
