West Palm Beach police have made an arrest in a homicide that took place almost two weeks ago.

31-year-old Nicholas Edward Olson was shot and killed February 7 in the 1200 block of Alpha Street.

The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Apprehension Unit arrested Javon Charles, 21, Monday morning, police said.

Charles was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail. He faces charges of first-degree murder with a firearm, robbery with a firearm, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.  

In court Tuesday a judge denied bond on two of the charge and set bond at $50,000 on the charge of possessing a firearm by a felon.

If released from jail at a future point, the judge ordered Charles to have no contact with the victim's family.
