A fifth suspect in the murder of a Brevard County man was arrested late Tuesday night after deputies found him trying to hide inside a refrigerator.

Damien Young, 22, was arrested in connection with the killing of Rayshaan Berry, whose body was found earlier this month along State Road 50 in Titusville.

According to the investigation, Berry, 28, was ambushed at a Brevard County motel. Investigators said one of the suspects, 22-year-old Lauren Hudgens, lured Berry to the motel under the ruse of prostitution.

Berry was then robbed at gunpoint by other men when he arrived. When Berry refused to comply with the robbery, he was shot.

Brevard County detectives said Berry's body was driven west of I-95 on State Road 50, where it was dumped on the side of the road. A motorist on his way to work spotted Berry's body on June 1.

Four others — three men and a woman — were arrested in connection with Berry's murder.

Young is charged with robbery with a firearm and first-degree murder.

Deputies and members of the Brevard County Sheriff's Office's GAMEOVER Task Force located Young "attempting to conceal himself in a refrigerator" as they were searching a residence along the 1200 block of Pollyanna Drive.

Anyone with information on Berry's murder is asked to call Agent Wayne Simock, of the Brevard County Sheriff's Office, at 321-633-8413 or Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS (8477).
