Rasheed Martin, 20, was arrested at the Bartley Manor Complex at 3900 Tower Ave. in Superior, Wis., on July 22, according to a statement from the Douglas County sheriff’s office. Sheriff’s police and the U.S. Marshal Service made the arrest.
Superior is located just over the state line from Duluth, Minn., about 460 miles from Chicago.
Martin is charged with one count of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder for the gang-related shooting that killed the 7-year-old and wounded a 26-year-old woman just before midnight July 4 in the 1100 block of North Harding in the Humboldt Park neighborhood.
Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy has said the bullet was meant for Amari’s father Antonio Brown, whom he described as a ranking gang member with 45 previous arrests.
Martin, of the 900 block of North Monticello, has been extradited to Chicago and is scheduled to appear in bond court Wednesday.
