PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The U.S. Marshals Service has captured a suspect at a hotel in Youngstown, accused of murdering a man in Providence, Rhode Island on Monday.
Mayobanex Martinez, 22, was arrested as a fugitive from justice Wednesday for a “murder out of Rhode Island,” according to the Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office. He is currently in custody at the Mahoning County Jail.
WKBN’s sister station, WPRI, has learned Martinez was wanted by police for the shooting death of a 28-year-old man in Providence Monday night.
The victim was later identified by Providence police as Michael Luciano De La Rosa.
The homicide remains under investigation, but police indicated it may have stemmed from an argument between the two men.
