(C) Leon County Detention Facility Rohn Vause was arrested Thursday on charges of manslaughter, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, two counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Tallahassee police arrested a second suspect connected to the fatal shooting at a Pullen Road townhouse that they say helped remove and bury the victim in Gadsden County last month. Thomas Bryant, 20, was charged with accessory after the fact and mishandling of human remains for his role. The first suspect to be arrested was 38-year-old Rohn Vause, picked up June 25 on charges of manslaughter, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, two counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He has also been charged with mishandling of human remains. Bryant, from the community of Alford, was arrested without incident near Marianna but has not yet been booked into the Leon County Detention Facility. TPD has released few details of the investigation, but in a press release, Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts said Bryant's "involvement in the homicide is suspected to be posthumous, where he allegedly assisted in attempting to relocate and dismember the decedent in a malicious effort to dispose of the body." 

His arrest was announced at the same time as a second suspect was arrested in connection with a drug robbery turned deadly shooting on Friday at the University Courtyard Apartments on South Adams Street. He has been identified as Zatoriyan Gould, 20.  The first suspect, 20-year-old Jacob Davis, was arrested in Dothan on Monday.  In the Pullen Street shooting, TPD investigators say the body of the victim was found in Gadsden County after a tip was provided to the Wakulla County Sheriff's Office.

The tip about the incident, which was not immediately reported, led to Vause's arrest. Contact Karl Etters at [email protected] or @KarlEtters on Twitter. Never miss a story: Subscribe to the Tallahassee Democrat.
