While police are relieved that the prime suspect, 23-year-oldRiccardo McCray, is behind bars, they say it's not over yet.
"This investigation continues. We ask anyone with information toplease come forward. We know there are a lot of witnesses. Webelieve we have a real solid case," said Derenda.
And police are asking us not to show the suspects face. They sayit could hurt their case.
Derenda explained, "I ask that the press please don't publicizehis picture. A lot of people out there may have to ID him in aphoto album or a lineup."
Police say they put a lot of pressure on McCray and that's thereason they believe he turned himself into police here at Channel 4Wednesday.
"Last night, we had 75-80 officers working with our SWAT teamworking with other agencies to numerous locations where we believethe suspect might have been hiding out. We put a lot of pressure atnumerous places and we believe the pressure might have gotten tohim. People didn't get a lot of sleep since August 14th," saidDerenda.
But they'll likely sleep better now, believing the prime suspectin the City Grill massacre is behind bars.
