Police brass described the crime as one of “the most disturbing crimes” seen in Ward 5 in recent years.
The children were not harmed despite having an up-close view of their father’s slaying.
Harris was quickly identified as a suspect, and after months of searching, the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force obtained a D.C. Superior Court arrest warrant and took Harris into custody on Friday. He was brought to Metro Police Department’s Homicide Branch and charged with first-degree murder.
