A 16-year-old Arkansas boy escaped from police custody at the scene of a Little Rock carnival shooting, but after a four-day search, officers say the boy has been arrested.
Keaton McGee was first detained on Saturday, the night of the shooting of Deante Smith, 22, police said. Smith died later at the hospital.
However, McGee requested medical attention and was about to be transported to a local hospital when he fled, authorities said.
That night, authorities said they searched the area via drone and police dogs, but couldn't find McGee.
After the four-day search for McGee, he was arrested around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, as reported by Arkansas Democrat Gazette.
McGee was initially served with an escape warrant, but Little Rock Police stated they worked overnight to obtain an arrest warrant for capital murder.
McGee was served with the warrant while being held in jail, police said.
Police also stated at the time of Saturday’s shooting, McGee happened to be on bail following his arrest in connection to the Feb. 28 shooting of a 17-year-old girl.
