WASHINGTON (DC News Now) — Police said a man wanted for murder fired at them in Northeast Tuesday morning.

The Metropolitan Police Department had been looking for 27-year-old Avery Miler for more than a month and a half. He is suspect in the murder of 25-year-old Aryeh Wolf, who was shot and killed on Aug. 10. Wolf, who was from Baltimore, Md. was working on on a roof when he was hit. Police identified Miler as the suspect in Wolf’s killing with nearby surveillance cameras and released Miler’s photo on Aug. 11.

Police said someone called them around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday saying Miler was in the area of Blaine Street NE.

According police, officers spotted Miler and he started shooting at them and then ran into an apartment building and barricaded himself inside.

At a news conference, Asst. Chief Leslie Parsons with the Metropolitan Police Department said no officer was hit when Miler fired. By 10 a.m., police no longer said Miler was barricaded inside the building on Blaine Street NE. Instead, Parsons said officers were searching for Miler within a perimeter of several blocks.

Schools in the area were put on modified schedules because of the situation.

Parsons said the U.S. Marshals Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were helping in the search.
