THE DISTRICT

Arrest made in shooting death

A man who last week ran from a house without his clothes and escaped an attempt by police to arrest him in connection with a fatal shooting in the District has been caught, D.C. police said Thursday.

Duron Hudson, 18, of Hyattsville, Md., is charged with first-degree murder while armed.

The U.S. Marshals Service said the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Hudson about 4 p.m. Wednesday after seeing him go into a residence in the 1800 block of 23rd Street SE. The Marshals Service said he had sliced open a mattress and was hiding inside.

Hudson was being sought in the June 22 killing of George Hendrix, 22, of Southeast. Hendrix was shot about 3:15 p.m. in the 300 block of K Street SE, in the Near Southeast neighborhood.
