    Police have made an arrest in the March 14 shooting of Olu Williams.

    Officials said an 18-year-old was arrested earlier this week in connection with a March 2013 death of Akinwole Olu Williams, shot outside of his apartment.

    Williams, who often got rides home from co-workers, took the Metro March 14 and was shot right outside of his apartment in the 1000 block of 44th Street NE. He was transported to a hospital and later pronounced dead.

    "I’m still hurting because no matter what this isn’t going to bring him back," Williams' mother told News4. "They took something that is irreplaceable that no one has the right to do."
