June 27, 2019 -Chicopee- Hampden District Attorney Anthony D. Gulluni announced today the apprehension of Kaevon Brimfield, 26, of Springfield in connection with the fatal shooting of Mr. Charles White, 27, of Springfield.
Extensive efforts have been made to seek and apprehend Brimfield since detectives identified him as a suspect in the June 9 murder in Chicopee. At the request of District Attorney Gulluni, Brimfield was added to the Massachusetts State Police Most Wanted List and is considered a person of interest in two other murders, one a home invasion in Springfield and another in Atlanta, GA, both occurring in February of 2019.
Hampden District Attorney Anthony Gulluni stated, “I thank all the members of law enforcement, specifically the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section and the U.S. Marshals’ New York & New Jersey Task Force, who worked on this case and ultimately apprehended this dangerous and violent fugitive. Upon his return to Massachusetts, we will work to ensure that justice is served for the victim and his family and that Kaevon Brimfield is held accountable for the heinous acts he allegedly committed.
Three other suspects have been arrested in connection with this investigation: Daniel Caldwell, 27, of Agawam, Namel Clark, 26, of Springfield, and Gilfrey Gregory, 27, of Springfield.
