A Georgetown University football player wanted in connection to a Washington, DC, murder was reportedly arrested in Georgia on Monday.

US Marshals picked up Dijon Williams, who hails from Georgia, in a house in Gwinnett County, authorities told Fox 5 DC.

Williams, a senior wide receiver for the Hoyas, was being sought for his alleged role in the July 21 fatal shooting of Nurudeen Thomas, the report said.

Following his arrest, the university suspended Williams from the football team, which has not played this fall due to a coronavirus-related postponement.

“While we are working to learn more information, we will cooperate fully with any investigation and we stand prepared to offer resources to members of our community who may be affected by this news,” the university said in a statement to the news station.

“At this time, there are no indications that the alleged crime took place near the University.”
