    D.C. police arrest suspect in fatal shooting of child, have warrant for another

    Police have arrested one of four suspected gunmen in the fatal shooting of 10-year-old Makiyah Wilson, who died in a barrage of 70 bullets fired into a courtyard as she went to buy ice cream, the District’s police chief and mayor announced Saturday.

    The person arrested was identified as Qujuan Thomas, 20, of Southeast. He was charged with first-degree murder while armed and is expected to make his first court appearance on Monday.

    Authorities said they have identified a second suspect in the case — Quentin Michals, 21, of Southeast — and have issued a warrant for his arrest on a first-degree murder charge.

    At the time Makiyah was killed, Thomas was on two years’ probation after pleading guilty in December to being part of an armed robbery of a man in Southeast, online court records show. He received a suspended sentence and was credited with the roughly five months he had served awaiting trial before being released on probation, the court records show.

    Quentin Michals, 21, turned himself in to police Monday morning. Police named Michals as a suspect in Makiyah Wilson's death Saturday.

    He has been charged with first-degree murder while armed.

    Wilson was only steps from her Northeast Washington home on July 16 when five men jumped out of a car and opened fire into a crowd, police said.

    Police are still looking for information on the three other men and ask anyone with information to contact police. There's a reward of up to $45,000 for information in the case.

    Police link feud between D.C. neighborhoods to fatal shooting of 10-year-old girl
    By Keith L. Alexander, Reporter

    The crew from Wellington Park had been planning a drive-by shooting in rival Clay Terrace turf for weeks, police say, even buying a stolen car to use. On the afternoon of July 16, it was time to recruit some gunmen.

    “Let’s Go Do Wat We Do,” one leader texted a friend. There was a reminder to bring the “100 Roun” — a gun capable of holding 100 rounds of ammunition. And an admonition that one member “better not be scared.”

    At 6 p.m., a text announced it was time to “go put some work in.”

    Details of the July 16 killing of Makiyah were included in a 38-page arrest affidavit filed Monday. The documents describe the alleged planning of the shooting and the violent histories of the crews from Wellington Park and Clay Terrace. D.C. authorities mention three other killings in 2017 and 2018 that police say have links to Wellington Park, a neighborhood near Barry Farm in Southeast Washington. One victim, a man shot a week after Makiyah’s death, is identified as a person who helped get the vehicle used in her shooting.
    The court document shows a detailed investigation that relied on DNA, text messages and intercepted jailhouse phone calls in which police said the shooting was discussed in coded language as a terrorist attack. Police relied on social media postings of suspects holding guns and evidence found in the abandoned Infiniti that included a rifle bullet, found in the railing along the front passenger seat, and two 9mm cartridge casings found under a wiper blade and on a rear floorboard.

    They all matched casings found at the shooting scene, the affidavit says.

    Judge: Enough evidence for trial in Makiyah Wilson murder case

    Video at link: https://www.wusa9.com/video/news/lo...rial-in-makiyah-wilson-murder-case/65-8323776

    Mother of slain 10-year-old girl sobs as evidence is presented against accused killers

    Three men charged in the shooting death of a 10-year-old girl over the summer will await their next court date in jail.

    The courtroom was packed Wednesday with family members of both Makiyah Wilson and the three accused gang members, who were ordered held without bond by D.C. Superior Court Judge Craig Iscoe.

    Donetta Wilson tried to control her emotions but moaned with grief at seeing surveillance video of four men opening fire in July 2018 in the Clay Terrace Northeast neighborhood, spraying some 70 bullets into a crowd. It was within those seconds that a bullet pierced her daughter’s heart, killing the girl.

    The prosecution asserted the three men charged — Qujuan Thomas, Gregory Taylor, and Quentin Michals — are members of a neighborhood crew called the Wellington Park gang. Homicide Sgt. Keith Batton testified to the evidence against the three during a preliminary hearing in D.C. Superior Court Wednesday.

    The three allegedly planned the shooting for weeks, recruited other members to join in the attack, secured the firearms and the getaway car, according to court documents charging them with murder. The video of the shooting shows four gunmen jump out of a black Infiniti and shoot indiscriminately into a crowd.

    “This is crazy. You know, not even because it’s my child. It’s just beyond,” Donetta Wilson told reporters after the hearing

    Wilson’s older daughter was also wounded in the shooting but survived. “So its just crazy for it to be a sunny, you know, regular day and somebody come and shoot into a crowd. That’s just absurd,” Donetta Wilson said.

    “It’s just hard seeing the videos and to see how excited they was to know that a baby was killed,” Donetta Wilson said of the evidence presented in court.

    Instagram videos posted live on Michals’ account the night of the shooting shows the three defendants flipping off the camera and singing along to a song whose lyrics included: “Homicide — we the reason why the murder rate high.”

    All 7 defendants in shooting death of 10-year-old appear in court; get 2020 trial date

    For the first time, all seven people charged in the shooting death of 10-year-old Makiyah Wilson appeared in court together Friday as the case against them moves ahead.

    The seven are accused in the death of Makiyah Wilson, who was shot as she walked to an ice cream truck in a Northeast D.C. neighborhood in July. Police say she was hit as bullets were fired into a crowd as part of a gang feud.

    The co-defendants went before a judge in D.C. Superior Court Friday. Six of them — Qujuan Thomas, Gregory Taylor, Quentin Michals, Darrise Jeffers, Mark Price and Marquell Cobbs — are charged with murder, while Quanisha Ramsuer is charged with obstructing justice. Ramsuer is the only one not being held before trial.

    During the hearing Friday, a tentative trial date was set for August 2020.

    One man was removed from the courtroom before the hearing. The victim’s mother, Donetta Wilson, later said the man had been taunting her by “singing the song, ‘this is the reason why the murder rate up.'” According to multiple reports on court documents, two of the suspects can be heard rapping similar lyrics in a video posted to Instagram.

    D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham weighed in, saying that while he was not familiar with the details of the incident, “there is a spot in hell for anyone who would harass that woman or that family after what she’s been through.”

    US Marshals offer reward for capture of suspect in fatal shooting of 10-year-old DC girl

    A reward of $5,000 is being offered for information that leads to the capture of one of 11 people charged in the shooting death of 10-year-old Makiyah Wilson.

    The suspect currently at large is Isaiah Murchison, who is charged with first-degree murder in Wilson's death. Wilson was fatally shot in July 2018 while she was walking through the crowded courtyard of her Northeast apartment complex to buy ice cream from an ice cream truck.

    Four masked men are said to have jumped out of a car and fired gunshots into the crowd, striking the 10-year-old, who wasn't a target. Police believe the attack involved a turf war between gangs linked to Clay Terrace, where Wilson lived.

    Police have alleged Gregory Taylor, Qujuan Thomas, Antonio Murchison, and Isaiah Murchison were those four gunmen.

    A press release from the Marshals says that Murchison is a known member of the Wellington Park crew, a gang.

    Before a June indictment that charged 4 more people in the shooting, 7 were charged earlier in 2018. Eight defendants have been charged with her murder, and the others are charged with conspiracy and illegal gang membership.

    Tips can be called in to the Metropolitan Police at (202) 727-9099, texted to them at 50411, or made directly to the Marshals at usmarshals.gov/tips.
