Police say they have Kevon Neal, who was wanted in connection with Officer Adrian Morris' death earlier this week. They will release more information this afternoon.

Police say he was the driver in the car chase that killed Officer Morris. Morris and his police partner had chased after the suspects in a theft at a gas station in Laurel. The suspects in the stolen car were speeding down Interstate 95 in Laurel and Beltsville crossing all lanes of traffic, according to police.

"The citizens on the Beltway make maneuvers, breaking, swerving, stopping to avoid colliding with the suspect vehicle causing a chain reaction," Major Mike Straughan said.

The chain reaction reportedly caused Officer Morris to lose control. His cruiser flipped several times before landing upright in a ravine.

Police located the stolen car in Southeast D.C. Hours later they arrested 25-year-old Kenneth Clark Mitchell of Northeast Washington who police say was the passenger.

As of now, the two suspects are charged with felony theft.

Prince George's County Police say there will be a moment of silence on Saturday at the Redskins preseason game.
