A Michigan man accused of killing a man at a barbecue in Detroit before barricading himself in a home with a kidnapped child has been arrested.
Devenius Weathers, 29, of Eastpointe, Michigan, was arrested earlier this week and charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping, carrying a concealed weapon, third-degree fleeing and eluding, and felony firearm, according to the Detroit Police Department.
The shooting took place a little before 9:30 p.m. Aug. 21 at a home in the 8230 block of Pierson Street.
Weathers is accused of fatally shooting Charles Ray II, 31, during an argument over barbecue chicken, according to Fox 2 Detroit.
Police found Weathers at a home in the 8490 block of Heyden Street the following day, Fox 2 Detroit reported. Officers attempted to stop Weathers as he pulled out of the driveway before he took off.
Weathers went to a home in the 8250 block of Pierson Street, where police say he barricaded himself with a 2-year-old girl he kidnapped. She is believed to be his daughter, according to Fox 2 Detroit.
Weathers came out after a five-hour standoff with the child.
