The Metropolitan Police Department announced today that an additional arrest has been made in the shootings that occurred on South Capitol Street on March 30, 2010.
Twenty-one year old Jeffrey D. Best was arrested in Southeast, DC just before 9 am on Monday, April 26, 2010 by members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force pursuant to an arrest warrant charging him with four counts of Murder One While Armed and one count of Felony Murder While Armed.

When will these people learn to pick up a book instead of a gun? Aren't they tired of going to funerals?
