The suspect, George Washington Mosley (b/m, DOB 12-20-79), was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals agents near Corpus Christi, Texas, on September 27.
He was wanted in the killing of Rashad Amir Smith, 22, of 4040 Synott. Mosley is charged with murder in the 248th State District Court.

Officers responded to a person down call and found Mr. Smith lying on the side of the road. Witnesses reported hearing gunshots as Smith walked between two parked vehicles, a cream colored Ford Expedition or Explorer and a black SUV, possibly a Ford Escape. After the shooting, the vehicles fled the scene. Smith suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at Ben Taub General Hospital.

Later that day, Smith's sport utility vehicle, a gray Mercury Mariner, was found burned in the 7600 block of Dornay. Investigators believe that vehicle was the black SUV witnesses described as leaving the scene following the shooting.
