The Sheriff’s Office said Kamara Elliott was arrested in the Daytona Beach area and was taken into custody without incident.

Deputies said they are thankful for the public sharing Elliott’s photo when warrants were issued for him.

The 18-year-old was considered armed and dangerous and was wanted on two counts of principal to attempted first-degree murder with a firearm.

“We think he and a group of people from Daytona Beach came over here on two separate occasions and we believe, opened up on innocent people,” Sheriff Mike Chitwood said. “All this we believe is connected to the murder. So we’re trying to round up all the players.”
