MILWAUKEE -- Miami Dade Police arrested a man Milwaukee Police believe killed a 34-year-old man who pulled into a gas station last Tuesday.

Demario Marshall Easley was arrested at 10:55 am Monday on a fugitive warrant at 7000 29th Street in Miami. No other details of his arrest were made available. Milwaukee police say detectives will likely head to Miami to assist with the process of transferring Easley back to Milwaukee where he is expected to face more charges. Easley is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon and bail jumping.
 
According to a criminal complaint released by the District Attorney's office, investigators believe Easley and Deron Berry-Williams were selling "lean" or codeine cough syrup at the U.S. Gas station on Green Bay Avenue last Tuesday. When Bryson Brown talked to the men, investigators say Easley shot and killed Brown. Detectives interviewed Berry-Williams who investigators say detailed this version of the story.
 
On Thursday, during an exchange of gunfire on Teutonia Ave. that injured a Milwaukee police detective, police arrested Berry-Williams.  A bullet grazed the veteran detective. Berry-Williams is in custody at the Milwaukee County jail and the District Attorney's Office continues to review the case.
