Columbus police said Tuesday afternoon they located and apprehended Demartre Harris, a suspect in the November murder of Marcus Bowden on Cusseta Road.
Harris was arrested after an extensive manhunt ended Tuesday around 7:30 a.m. when the Robbery/Homicide Division and Fugitive Squad for the Columbus Police Department executed a search warrant at 4924 Sentry St.
Harris had several outstanding warrants, and he’d been “identified in several crimes since” Bowden, 30, was shot multiple times in the stomach, Lt. John McMichael wrote in a release.
Harris, 22, faces charges of murder, three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, violation of probation, theft by taking, criminal trespass and simple battery, police said.
McMichael said Anthony Marquis Seldon, 25, also was arrested and charged with hindering apprehension, as well as three counts of violating probation.
Niagra Thomas, the 18-year-old woman police put out a “be on the lookout for” on Sunday, also was arrested for hindering apprehension, police said. On Sunday, Thomas and her 6-month-old baby had not been seen since Feb. 16, when her friend said she drove the two to a convenience store on St. Mary’s Road to meet up with Harris, the child’s father.
Police said Sunday that Thomas and the baby showed up at Thomas’ mother’s home that afternoon.
Harris, Seldon and Thomas all will have hearings Wednesday.
