D.C. police arrested a 14-year-old suspect in connection to a homicide that took place in Southeast Saturday.

The arrest was made Wednesday in connection to the killing of Antonio Gardiner of Oxon Hill, Maryland. The 14-year-old suspect was arrested on charges of first-degree murder.

Gardiner, 36, was found shot Saturday night when police responded to a call for a shooting on the 1500 block of Pennsylvania Avenue SE. When police arrived, medics transported the victim to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Video footage from a nearby McDonald's aided police in their investigation, officials said in a press conference Thursday. Police are seeking additional assistance in finding a second suspect.
