A Chicago man wanted for killing a 7-year-old boy is being held in Douglas County.

Twenty-year-old Rasheed Martin was wanted in connection with the July Fourth homicide of Amari Brown in a drive by shooting believed to be gang related.

Martin was taken into custody at a residence in the Bartley Manor complex on Tower Avenue.

Authorities say the threat of a close encounter with a K–9 convinced him to surrender.

Martin is still behind bars.

He’ll be in court Monday for extradition to Chicago.
