A South Florida man accused of shooting a small child during a drive-by has reportedly been captured at the Island Boys residence, according to local reports.
20-year-old Andrew Thomas was found asleep at the Coral Springs home of the rap duo during a raid conducted by local authorities.
Thomas is wanted for the death of Ronziyah Atkins, an 8-year-old girl who was reportedly collateral damage in a drive-by gone wrong.
According to Coral Springs Talk, Atkins was playing with her cousins and siblings near her front porch when a stray bullet struck her.
It is believed that Thomas had a different target, but missed.
The shooting took place in Belle Gpade, a pocket of Palm Beach County known for poverty and gang violence.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office carried out the raid, and Thomas was arrested for 1st Degree Murder with a Firearm, Attempted 1st Degree Murder with a Firearm and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.
