WASHINGTON — A murder suspect has been arrested six months after a special police officer was killed in the line of duty. 

On September 21, 2021, Capt. Angela Washington, 41, was found dead of a gunshot wound at an apartment building. Washington had gone to check on some officers who were patrolling there, according to NBC 4. At the time, Washington was working for the Metro Special Police, a private security company of commissioned officers. 

On Wednesday, police said 22-year-old Jadohn Bracey had been arrested and charged with first degree murder, according to the report. 

Washington is survived by her four children and two grandchildren. 

“My mother was a hardworking woman,” said Washington’s daughter, Shanya. “She did anything for her kids. She did anything for whoever.” 

The motive is still unclear and the case remains under investigation, police said.
