Nearly a year after 10-year-old Makiyah Wilson was killed by gunfire as she waited to buy ice cream, D.C. police arrested a man investigators described as one of four men responsible for her death, police said.
D.C. police said that Antonio Murchison, 26, of Southeast Washington was arrested on charges of premeditated first-degree murder while armed in the killing on July 16, 2018.
Police said four masked men opened fire on a courtyard crowded with people in the 300 block of 53rd Street NE.
Murchison is among 11 people charged in Makiyah’s killing. Several face murder charges, while others are accused of conspiracy and obstruction of justice.

A Prince William County man has been charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer and a firefighter, police said.
Christopher Santiago, 21, of Triangle was wearing a bulletproof vest and a gun belt and identified himself as a government contractor and then a volunteer firefighter when patrol officers confronted him last week, Prince William County police said.
Officers approached Santiago after seeing his vehicle with flashing red and white lights at a Dumfries intersection. Police said he had stopped his vehicle and activated his lights to engage with a citizen.
