A spokesperson with The U.S. Marshals Service says James Dean Brewer, 24, turned himself in late Saturday afternoon. Brewer, a suspect in a fatal shooting in the District back in June, was reportedly accompanied by an attorney.

This all began Friday shortly before Brewer was to appear before a judge. According to court records, Brewer switched ID bracelets with another prisoner who was being held on a drug charge.

Brewer then apparently posed as that other person and was released since the charge, possession of PCP, is considered a misdemeanor.

Authorities say Brewer's escape is still under investigation.
