A Michigan man, who has been on the run after he allegedly killed his mother, was on Sunday arrested after a police officer spotted him ordering food at Domino’s, authorities announced. Per FOX 2, 25-year-old Joshua Hill was declared wanted by authorities over the murder of his 64-year-old mother after she was found with several gunshot wounds at her home in Inkster.
Authorities had launched a manhunt for him since September 4. Hill was arrested by a Detroit police officer after he recognized the suspect. “He saw him downtown buying a pizza,” Chief James White said.
The suspect was said to be ordering stuffed cheese bread. “If you will kill your mother, you’ll do anything,” Inkster Police Chief Bill Ratliff said. White also said the officer who took Hill into custody “recognized him from the media reports the pictures and then the intel pictures we had.”
White also commended the officer and praised the manner in which he arrested the suspect. “He did not have to engage in a use of force with him, someone who obviously has very little to lose and was, in fact, armed,” the Detroit police chief said.
Prior to arresting Hill, Domino’s employees were told to get back, FOX 2 reported. The suspect was later handed back to authorities in Inkster. “Now the people of Detroit and the people of Inkster can rest easy, knowing the subject is not out there with a gun going to hurt someone,” Ratliff said.
