The man who is wanted for the murder of a solar panel employee from Baltimore in August is accused of firing at police officers in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, but he was able to avoid being apprehended and is still at large.
Avery Miler was confronted by a D.C. At approximately 6:22 in the morning, an arrest warrant issued by a superior court for first-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of 25-year-old Aryeh Wolf was discovered. At a news conference held on Tuesday, Assistant Chief Leslie Parsons of the Investigative Services Bureau of the DC Metropolitan Police Department informed reporters about an incident that took place on the 5300 block of Ames Street.
After receiving a call about the sighting from a female citizen who dialed 911, officers from the 6th district arrived at the site and located a suspect who matched the description of the person seen.
The suspect, who was described as a black male aged 27 and wearing all black clothing when he was last seen, then produced a firearm, which was believed to be a handgun, and fired several rounds in the direction of officers before fleeing on foot, according to Parsons. He added that fortunately none of the officers were injured in the incident. According to Parsons, the suspect’s shoes had some sort of reflective material on them, and the suspect’s clothing had white lettering or symbols running down the sleeve. Officers did not fire back at the suspects.
The search was also assisted by the United States Marshals Service and the Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) Bureau of the United States Department of Justice. Although the DC Police Department initially tweeted that Miler had fled into a residential building after firing at officers and was barricaded inside, Parsons clarified to reporters that officers established a perimeter outside several blocks and continued to search the area. Miler was believed to be inside the building when he was shot and killed by officers.
