Homicide Suspects In Custody Following Chase Through Miami-Dade

Two homicide suspects are in custody following a high-speed chase Monday through Miami-Dade County, authorities said.

Miami-Dade police said the suspects -- Brandon Lee and Krishon Hedge, both 23 -- are wanted in New York and its homicide task force was doing surveillance on them as they were in South Florida.

Police said the chase started in Miami Beach. 

According to authorities, the BMW involved in the chase, at one point, sped down Alton Road going the wrong way. Later, the BMW narrowly missed colliding with a rider on a scooter.

Police said Hedge then sped onto Interstate 95 and headed onto the Dolphin Expressway, driving west toward Miami International Airport.

Authorities eventually took Hedge and Lee into custody in the area of Northwest 20th Street and 27th Avenue. Multiple agencies assisted in the arrest.

According to U.S. Marshals spokesman Manny Puri, the men were wanted in connection with the murder of 25-year-old Jaquan Campbell in Queens, New York, that occurred earlier this month. 

Police in New York said Campbell was fatally wounded after dispute at a strip club.

Puri said U.S. Marshals were notified that the men were in South Florida, and they were soon spotted in Miami Beach. 

Puri said units called for backup and a chase ensued.
