Jarrell David Harris, 27, of southeast Washington, D.C., was wanted in connection to the March 4 homicide that happened in the 2300 block of 18th Street, northeast D.C.
The victim, identified as 42-year-old Sedrick Miller had been walking with his two children at the time of the shooting, police said. Miller was holding the car seat carrying his one-year-old and was holding handing with his five-year-old when his body was riddled with bullets and left for dead.
Police brass described the crime as one of "the most disturbing crimes" seen in Ward 5 in recent years.
The children were not harmed despite having an up-close view of their father’s slaying.
Harris was quickly identified as a suspect, and after months of searching, the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force obtained a D.C. Superior Court arrest warrant and took Harris into custody on Friday. He was brought to Metro Police Department’s Homicide Branch and charged with first-degree murder.
Fox 5 DC reported that Harris was denied bond during an arraignment hearing on Saturday. His next court appearance is scheduled for May 20.
