A homicide suspect wanted in Philadelphia was arrested in Decatur on Tuesday. 

The U.S. Marshals Service placed Derrick Rollins in custody and he is being held in the DeKalb County Jail. He is waiting to face a judge for an extradition hearing. The hearing has not been scheduled at this time. 

According to the U.S. Marshals Service, Rollins was wanted in the Philadelphia area for aggravated assault and homicide. Rollins was arrested at the Hidden Villas Apartments in the 2900 block of Panthersville Road.
