Another Suspect Arrested In Fatal Shooting Of 10-Year-Old

WASHINGTON (AP) — Police in the nation’s capital have arrested a seventh suspect in the death of a 10-year-old girl who was killed when gunshots were fired into a crowd.

WTOP-FM reported Friday that 19-year-old Darrise Jeffers has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder while armed in the July shooting of Makiyah Wilson.

Makiyah was on her way to get ice cream when four masked men leaped out of a car and fired gunshots into a crowded apartment courtyard. Metro police say Jeffers is a member of a gang that planned an attack on the neighborhood.
