MARIETTA — A man accused in an apartment complex killing has been arrested in Miami after allegedly fleeing from police.

Damion Wright, 26, of Marietta was shot dead on March 27 in the parking lot of the Pointes of Marietta Apartments on Cunningham Road off Powder Springs Road about 2.5 miles from the Marietta Square.

Wright was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital after the shooting, but died from his injuries.

Police charged Daniel Squires, 22, also of Marietta, on the same day of the shooting. He was arrested at his home at Ridge Pointe Apartments on Franklin Road.

A second suspect was arrested early Thursday morning by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force with the assistance of the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit, according to police. Nehemiah Anglin, 20, was arrested without incident in Miami after leaving Georgia to avoid arrest, police said.

Anglin will be extradited to Cobb where he will be prosecuted.

Police have not said what the relationship was between Wright and the two men charged in the shooting. He was not a resident of the Pointes of Marietta Apartments where the shooting took place but lived in a nearby apartment complex.
