US Marshals offer $20K for info on suspect in death of 10-year-old Makiyah Wilson

Eleven people have been charged in connection with the death of 10-year-old D.C. girl Makiyah Wilson last year, but one of them continues to evade capture.

U.S. Marshals said Friday that they are increasing the reward for information from $10,000 to $20,000 on suspect Isaiah Murchison.

Murchison was indicted last June on a charge of first-degree murder.

Wilson was killed in July 2018 when four masked people got out of a stolen black Infiniti SUV on the 300 block of 53rd Street in Northeast and started shooting. She was walking to an ice cream truck and got caught in the crossfire.

The shooting lasted less than 10 seconds, and investigators found 76 shell casings in the Clay Terrace neighborhood from at least four different firearms. Four other people were hurt.

Police believe the shooting was motivated by a grudge between neighboring gangs.

Several of the defendants are charged with murder, one is charged with obstruction, and all are charged with conspiracy and being a member of an illegal street gang. The U.S. Marshals said in a news release that Murchison is a known member of the Wellington Park crew.

Anyone with information on Murchison should contact D.C. police at (202) 727-9099. Those who want to stay anonymous can send a text to 50411, or submit a tip online at the U.S. Marshals’ tip reporting site.
