Houston authorities have apprehended and charged the suspect wanted in the fatal Monday shooting of his ex-girlfriend’s 9-year-old daughter.

Jeremiah Jones, 22, is facing charges of capital murder and assault with a deadly weapon after fatally shooting the 9-year-old and wounding her mother, 29, at 404 Oxford Street, according to the Houston Police Dertment.

– “The family got serated. The suspect here executed a 9-year-old little girl in the artment with a handgun,” Det. Sgt. Michael Cass said Tuesday. “He then went after the mother, and she was shot.”

The mother was with the child and her two other children, ages 1 and 3, watching television when Jones went to their artment unannounced just before 10 pm and began firing, Acesparks Houston reported.

Jones then fled the scene of the shooting and remained on the run until about 6 pm on Tuesday, at which time authorities located the suspect in the 22300 block of Imperial Valley Drive and arrested him without incident.

“This senseless act of domestic violence hits home for me and the HPD family,” Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said Tuesday.
