A Chicago man suspected of shooting and killing 7-year-old Amari Brown in the Humboldt Park neighborhood on Saturday, July 4 was arrested Wednesday in Superior, Wisconsin, according to ABC 7 Chicago.
Rasheed Martin, 20, was taken into custody without incident, CBS Chicago reports.
Martin will be extradited back to Chicago and charged with first-degree murder, according to Chicago Tribune.
Superintendent Garry McCarthy said the bullet that claimed the life of little Amari Brown was meant for his father who he says is a ranking gang member.
McCarthy held a news conference Sunday and said the system failed Amari. McCarthy said the boy’s father Antonio Brown, who has been arrested 45 times and has a lengthy criminal record, should not have been on the streets.
“If Mr. Brown is in custody, his son is alive,” McCarthy said, according to the Chicago Tribune. “That’s not the case. Quite frankly, he should’ve have been on the street.”
Amari Brown’s father, Antonio Brown, called for authorities to bring his family justice when speaking with reporters.
“We gon seek justice. We gone find out who did it and we gon find out the right way,” he said. “…Like they supposed to their job. I can’t do yall job. I do yall job, I go to jail. Yall do yall job, so let’s serve justice.”
