Police have located and arrested the man that was responsible for a homicide that happened on April 6.

At a little after 11:15 p.m., Southeast District officers were called to the 2300 block of Jefferson Street because of a shooting. The officers found Tavon Miles, 38, lying on the sidewalk suffering from gunshot wounds. Miles was transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital for treatment, but still ended up dying of his injuries.
