RICHMOND, Va. — US Marshals have captured a man wanted for a New Jersey murder hiding out in a home in Emporia Thursday afternoon.

“After an extensive investigation by the NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force, Trenton Divison, the team developed information that Gordon was likely hiding out in Emporia,”  US Marshals officials said in a news release.

Gordon is accused of fatally shooting a victim before fleeing New Jersey.

The USMS Regional Fugitive Task Force in Richmond includes investigators from the U.S. Marshals Service, Virginia State Police, Virginia Department of Corrections, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office and the Richmond, Chesterfield, and Hopewell Police Departments.
