After months of evading police, U.S. Marshals have finally announced the capture of 17-year-old Dayron Burney-Thorn, who was arrested in Germantown.
According to pictures and information released by U.S. Marshals, Burney-Thorn attempted to evade capture by jumping from a window in his fourth-floor apartment, leading him to sustain injuries, and be taken away handcuffed and on a stretcher.
Thorn is one of the people responsible for ambushing 14-year-old Nicolas Elizalde near Roxborough High School on Sept. 27, 2022.
The other four suspects who are Yaaseen Bivins, Saleem Miller, Troy Fletcher, and Zyhied Jones have all previously been arrested.
