U.S. Marshals in Florida Arrest 15 Most Wanted DC Murder Suspect

15 Most Wanted Fugitive, Nyjell OutlerWashington,

– The U.S. Marshals-led Florida Caribbean Regional
Fugitive Task Force (FCRFTF) today arrested a District of Columbia
murder suspect who had been added to the agency’s 15 Most Wanted
list one month ago.

Nyjell Outler, 19, was arrested in West Palm Beach
without incident. Members of the FCRFTF were acting on a collateral
lead sent by the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, who
adopted the case in September 2021.

Outler is alleged to have shot one man and killed
another while attending a gender reveal party March 20, 2021, in the
unit block of Madison Street NE. At the time of the shooting, Outler
wore an ankle monitor and was on pre-trial release for a gun charge
involving an AK-47 style rifle.

The U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) and the Metropolitan
Police Department (MPD) had each offered a reward of up to $25,000
for information leading to Outler’s arrest and conviction.

“I know we were all very gratified to hear of Nyjell
Outler’s arrest in Florida today,” said U.S. Marshal for the
Superior Court of the District of Columbia Robert Anthony Dixon. “I
commend the members of the Marshals fugitive task forces and our
partners who have worked so diligently to find him so he can finally
face justice.”

“I am grateful for the collaborative investigative
efforts between MPD members and our federal partners at the USMS
that led to the apprehension of Outler, holding him accountable for
his reckless actions,” said Robert J. Contee III, MPD Chief of
Police. “Thank you to our community, near and far, that led us to
his whereabouts and ultimately aided in bringing long sought-after
justice to the victims’ families.”

The USMS established the 15 Most Wanted
Fugitive Program in 1983 to prioritize the investigation and
apprehension of high-profile offenders considered to be some of the
country’s most dangerous fugitives – typically career criminals with
histories of violence who pose a significant threat to public
