PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – A second arrest has been made in the killing of a Miami-Dade corrections officer, Pembroke Pines police announced Thursday.

Sgt. Darryl Curtiss said Ockeeve Sinclair, 21, was arrested earlier in the day in Fort Pierce.

Brian Fairweather, 29, was arrested April 26 on multiple charges, including first-degree murder.

Authorities did not immediately say what charges Sinclair will face, but Curtiss said the case remains an "active criminal investigation."

Daveon Hall, 40, was found dead Jan. 29 inside his Pembroke Pines home in the 1000 block of Southwest 122nd Avenue.

Broward County Crime Stoppers, the Dade County Police Benevolent Association and the Miami-Dade County mayor's office offered a collective reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

According to an arrest report, Fairweather is the estranged husband of a neighbor Hall had recently started dating.

Detectives said surveillance video from Hall's apartment complex shows two men wearing hoodies walking between two buildings in the direction of Hall's apartment before he was shot.

Hall was found dead on his living room floor by his mother after he failed to show up for work.
