MSP Fugitive Unit, US Marshals, Fall River Police Capture Man Wanted for Ohio Homicide

 A suspect wanted for murder in Columbus, Ohio, was captured this morning in Fall River in a joint operation by Massachusetts State Police, the United States Marshals Service, and Fall River Police. 

TROY DUNCAN CAPERS 2d, 37, was taken into custody at an apartment at 19 Cook St.

The arrest came after US Marshals in Ohio developed information that CAPERS had fled to Massachusetts. Troopers assigned to the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section (MSP VFAS) and US Marshals in Boston (USMS) developed leads on three potential addresses in Fall River where CAPERS might be staying. MSP VFAS, USMS, Troopers assigned to the MSP Special Tactical Operations Team, Fall River Police, and Parole Officers set up surveillance on the three addresses. 

Shortly after 6:20 a.m. today one of the apprehension teams located CAPERS at the Cook Street apartment and made the arrest. 

CAPERS is wanted for homicide in Ohio for the fatal shooting of another man in Columbus on Jan. 4. The shooting occurred after CAPERS and the victim had a fistfight at a bar. After the fight CAPERS allegedly left the establishment, returned with a gun, and shot the victim.  

CAPERS was expected to be arraigned in Bristol County today as a fugitive from justice. Prosecutors will work work Ohio authorities to arrange the suspect’s rendition to answer to the homicide charge in that state.
