J’wa Charlery, a 19-year-old black male who goes by the street name “Balla,” is wanted on first degree murder charges stemming from an incident in Virginia on Nov. 2, 2014. Charlery allegedly shot a female at a hotel in Richmond and is now believed to be in St. Croix. Charlery is 6 feet tall and weighs 160 pounds.
