Police capture fugitive in Newport News
On Thursday, a fugitive NewsChannel 3 featured as one of the Peninsula’s most wanted was arrested.
Tyrek Allen was taken into custody on Traverse Road in Newport News.
Allen is accused of two shootings this past July. One person on West Queen Street in Hampton survived.
