Investigators confirm "In Pursuit with John Walsh" fugitive Erik Addison is in custody. Addison went on the run in the fall of 2019 after he allegedly opened fire on a car in Pennsylvania killing Richard Littlejohn Jr.
Littlejohn was at a gender reveal party just prior to his killing and two children were in the vehicle when Addison and another man allegedly opened fire. Authorities say the children were 10-years-old and 1-year-old and both survived. Reports say Tyrone Freeman was arrested on the night of the incident, but Addison remained on the run.
Investigators say they recently confirmed Addison was living with his girlfriend. They went to house to arrest him, but he wasn't easy to find. About 60 minutes into the search Addison was found attempting to hide behind a wall in the attic. According to Trib Live, "Police said they also found a semiautomatic 12-gauge shotgun, a .40-caliber Glock with an extended magazine and suspected marijuana and other drug paraphernalia."
