FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Citizen assistance led to the identification and this morning’s arrest of Adarius D. Frazier, 18, who is accused of shooting a man Thursday night outside the victim’s residence in the Edgehill public housing development and wounding two others, including a four-year-old boy.
         
The 53-year-old victim reported that he came out of his apartment and told Frazier, who does not live in Edgehill, to leave.  Frazier and the victim argued.  Frazier fired shots at the victim who was struck twice.  The victim’s four-year-old son was struck in the foot and a 19-year-old man walking in the area was struck in the leg.  None of the injuries were life-threatening.  The four-year-old was treated and released.
         
Warrants charging Frazier with attempted criminal homicide and three counts of aggravated assault were issued Friday night.  West Precinct officers this morning took Frazier into custody without incident at his Highway 70 South residence.  He is being held in lieu of $400,000 bond.
