Featured last week on “America’s Most Wanted,” a man wanted on charges in a 2011 slaying in West Virginia reportedly spent time in Hagerstown while on the run from authorities before his capture this week in Pennsylvania.
Rasshammach Roberts, 29, one of four men wanted for the Sept. 4 shooting at My Place in Ridgeley, W.Va., was apprehended in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., on Monday, according to a news release from the Mountain State Fugitive Task Force in Martinsburg, W.Va.
Roberts was arrested by members of the U.S. Marshal Service Fugitive Task Force, the release said.
When arrested in Wilkes-Barre, he initially denied being Roberts, but after being fingerprinted, admitted his identity, the release said.
Roberts had escaped to Hagerstown and then into West Virginia shortly after the shooting. The search for him covered seven states, the release said.
Roberts is a suspect in the shooting death of 25-year-old Ryan Henry and wounding of Richard Henry, 23, who was shot in the face, the release said.
