Marshals arrest suspect in shooting death of 5-month-old

- The U.S. Marshals arrested a suspect in connection with the shooting death of a 5-month-old Friday morning.

According to U.S. Marshals, an arrest warrant was issued for 19-year-old Davon Holmes at about 9 a.m. Friday and he was caught about an hour later.

5-month-old Aavielle Wakefield was shot in the chest while in a car with her mother in Cleveland on October 1.

“The death of a child is something no family should have to endure, and nothing we do can bring baby Aavielle back to her family.  We do hope that the arrest of Davon Holmes brings some peace to the Wakefield family," U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said in a statement.

Cleveland Police say that Holmes will be booked on aggravated murder charges.

Another man, Lawrence Hillard, was also arrested on tampering with evidence charges in connection with the case.
