St. Petersburg, Florida -- St. Pete Police have finally caught the man wanted in connection with a drug deal gone bad that resulted in a woman -- caught in the crossfire -- being dropped off at the hospital where she later died.
Detectives have been looking for Hires since March 18 when they identified him as a suspect in the shooting that led to Felicia Vickers' death.
During his arrest attempt by St. Pete Police and U.S. Marshals, Hires was found hiding in a child's crib inside his home in the 500 block of 26th Avenue South.
While resisting arrest, Hires suffered a K-9 dog bite. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment and officials anticipate he will be booked into the Pinellas County Jail later Tuesday evening for 2nd degree murder.
Back in March, detectives say a group of people drove over to Hires' home to buy drugs. Hires met
the car out front and at one point, an argument broke out between him
and someone in the car with Felicia Vickers. That's when Hires
reportedly pulled out a gun and shot into the car, hitting Vickers.
Vickers was driven to the hospital, and the others with her left before police arrived. She died later that afternoon.
