Maxwell Emerson, 25, a teacher and wrestling coach at Oldham County High School in Kentucky, was shot to death on the morning of July 5, 2023, while walking on the campus of Catholic University of America. The captured suspect is Jaime Macedo, age 22, charged with first-degree murder while armed.
Emerson was headed to the Library of Congress for a three-day professional development workshop and brought his mother and twin brother along to sightsee. Macedo pled guilty on a firearms charge in 2019 and had multiple probation violations afterward, for which he was scheduled to appear in court later this month.
