Howard County police have arrested a 15-year-old male in the Oct. 7 homicide of Rakki Miguel Jones-Onyejiaka, 36, in Columbia.

Officers were called to the 10400 block of Hickory Ridge Road at 8:17 p.m. for a report that a man had been shot in the parking lot. They located Jones-Onyejiaka deceased. Through investigation, detectives identified a male juvenile from Columbia as the suspect and learned his family members were engaged in an ongoing dispute with Jones-Onyejiaka.

The juvenile was arrested Oct. 13 in the area of Gulf Stream Row in Columbia and is charged as an adult with first- and second-degree murder, assault and handgun violations. He cannot be identified under Maryland law until there is a decision from the court to confirm that he will remain in the adult court system.
