FAYETTEVILLE, NC (WNCN) — Fayetteville police said Saturday a teen wanted in a fatal shooting involving a gun he stole minutes earlier Thursday night has been taken into custody in Maryland.
The case began at 8:13 p.m. Thursday, when police said a gun was recovered in a robbery on the 200 block of N. Windsor Drive, according to a Fayetteville Police Department press release.
Seven minutes later, shots were fired in the 200 block of S. Windsor Drive and victim Cesar Ivan Viera-Medina was shot in the arm and chest, officials said.
The 33-year-old victim later died at a nearby hospital, the press release said.
The suspect, Karon Peair Streets, 19, fled on foot and was last seen at the 1200 block of Ramsey Street, police said.
Police said Streets stole a gun from a family member and fired shots into a home where Viera-Medina was shot. Officials said Streets was “armed and dangerous” while on the run.
Streets was initially charged with attempted first-degree murder, but those charges were later upgraded to first-degree murder when Viera-Medina died, a press release said.
Streets was caught in Maryland by the Baltimore County Police Department’s Fugitive Unit and will be extradited to North Carolina, Fayetteville police said.
He is also accused of firing a firearm at an occupied property and of committing theft.
