PATERSON, N.J. -- Paterson police and U.S. Marshals early Thursday arrested a fugitive wanted on murder charges out of Virginia.
City Criminal Warrant Squad members, working with the Marshal's Regional Fugitive Task Force, arrested 29-year-old Robert L. McClure at a multi-family home on Union Avenue during a quick-strike raid around 6 a.m., city Police Director Jerry Speziale said.
McClure is charged in Portsmouth, VA with first-degree murder and weapons offenses in connection with the shooting death of a 28-year-old man there a week ago.
He was being held in the Passaic County Jail pending extradition proceedings.
"We will continue to work closely with our federal partners in our continuing effort to keep our city safe.," Speziale said.
