A District man has been arrested and charged with murder in the fatal shooting of a man Tuesday afternoon inside an apartment in Prince George’s County, police said.

Kerrick Daniels, 46, is being held without bond at the county jail. He is accused of killing 42-year-old Francis Bwaku of Capitol Heights, police said.

Officers were called to the 6600 block of Ronald Road in Capitol Heights at about 1:10 p.m. to investigate a reported shooting, authorities said. They found Bwaku, who had been shot multiple times, inside an apartment, where he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives believe Daniels and Bwaku knew each other, and that Bwaku was shot during an argument, authorities said. The investigation is ongoing.
