The second of two brothers wanted in connection with a homicide in a Lacey motel parking lot last summer is now in custody, Lacey police say.

Nicholas VanDuren, 32, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder by North Las Vegas police after a lengthy chase, according to a Lacey police news release.

Alexander VanDuren, his fraternal twin, was arrested shortly after being identified by Lacey police in mid-December.

The brothers were wanted in the death of Sean Shea, 36, of Kenmore, who was found unconscious the night of August 30 in the parking lot of the 100 block of College Street Southeast in Lacey. He later died at an area hospital.

In court records, prosecutors say the brothers physically assaulted Shea after an argument. During the assault, Nicholas VanDuren allegedly hit him with what police believe were brass knuckles, The Olympian previously reported.

Shea leaves behind his partner and two children, one of whom witnessed the assault, police say. It’s unclear why the row escalated, The Olympian reported.

Although the incident was reported on August 30, police did not publicly identify the two suspects until December 13. Both were wanted for second degree murder.
