an arrest warrant for Davis. The charges included murder and other related offenses.
It’s unclear where or how Davis was taken into police custody.
Kruger was shot inside his Point Breeze home on the 2300 block of Watkins Street earlier in October. The 39-year-old was struck seven times and pronounced dead after he was taken to the hospital, police said.
Investigators believe Kruger and Davis were acquaintances and said he was trying to help the 19-year-old. Police said Davis was known to the Philadelphia Police Department but they wouldn’t specify.
Davis’ last known address was just a five-minute walk away from Kruger’s home. Police said they have a video showing Davis in the area of the shooting.
Earlier in October, police didn’t say what led to the deadly incident.

He handled Mayor Jim Kenney’s social media and served as he communications director for the city’s Office of Homeless Services.
Kenney said after his death that he was “shocked and saddened.”
