The manhunt for Daron Wint was captured tonight.
The New York Daily News reported:
The suspect for the quadruple murder of a wealthy Washington D.C. family was arrested without incident in D.C. Thursday night after a manhunt that had stretched into Brooklyn, police said.
The capture of Daron Dylon Wint, 34, in northeast D.C. was confirmed to the Daily News around 11:30 p.m.
Wint was suspected earlier in the day of hiding in Brooklyn, and the manhunt for him there landed his girlfriend in police custody. She put cops on edge by claiming Wint wanted to turn himself in, sources said.
“We don’t know if he’s going to do it in a blaze of glory or just quietly call up and surrender,” said one police source earlier on Thursday. “We’re preparing for every eventuality. We don’t think he’s mentally fit.”
Tracking down the runaway Wint was “the No. 1 priority,” according to the police source.
While Wint was on the lam after the slaughter inside a $4.5 million mansion, Washington police pinged his girlfriend’s phone and tracked her down, the sources said.
