Police: Suspect surrenders in Detroit freeway shooting death of 3-year-old

DETROIT (AP) (1/30/2019) – Michigan State Police say a suspect in the shooting death of a 3-year-old boy on a Detroit freeway has turned himself on.

Police said in a statement Wednesday afternoon the suspect had surrendered. The suspect’s name hasn’t been released.

The surrender was announced shortly after state police announced they had recovered a Mercedes sought in connection with the shooting on Tuesday.

Christian Miller was shot Thursday evening while riding in his godmother’s SUV on the Southfield Freeway on Detroit’s west side. He died the following morning.

Police have said it’s unclear whether the vehicle was targeted and that the shooting did not appear to be related to road rage. A reward of up to $10,000 was being offered for information leading to an arrest.
