This arrest comes weeks after a 17-year-old male was charged with second degree murder, attempted robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony in connection to Peters’ death.

Peters was shot several times inside his home on Jan. 27. Deputies confirmed there was a conversation between Peters and a suspect at the front door of the home. Then there was a struggle when Peters tried to close the door. Authorities said several shots were then fired through the front door. Peters was rushed to a nearby hospital where he passed away.

The Sheriff’s Office says on Feb. 13 investigators charged Lambert with armed robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony stemming from a robbery to a person in the 100 block of Cavalier Drive. That robbery happened back on Sept. 8, 2014. The warrants were served at Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail where Lambert is still being held.
