HOLYOKE, Mass. (AP) – A man identified as a suspect soon after a fatal drive-by shooting in Massachusetts 11 years ago has been captured in Florida.
Local, state and federal law enforcement announced Thursday that 40-year-old Joey Camacho faces a murder charge in connection with the March 2005 shooting of Jesse Rosario in Holyoke.
The 25-year-old Rosario was shot on a city street. Authorities said then the victim was shot over a drug debt.
Camacho was identified as a suspect in 2005, but disappeared.
Police say Camacho was living in Miami and using the name Gerald Torres. He recently was pulled over for a traffic violation and police determined Torres’ and Camacho’s fingerprints were the same.
The suspect was still in Florida, and it was unclear whether he has a lawyer.
