Update: U.S. Marshals capture suspect accused of shooting man in face
UPDATE: The U.S. Marshals say they have captured Monte Robinson who was wanted for the March 24th murder of Angelo Beale.
He was taken into custody in Columbus, Ga. on Wednesday morning.
At around 10:45 a.m. surveillance teams saw him leaving a house off Torch Hill Road. He was then taken into custody. He is now in the custody of the Muscogee County Jail and will be extradited back to Suffolk to face first-degree murder charges.
Suffolk, Va. – Angelo Beale got into an argument with a man at an apartment complex in Suffolk. U.S. Marshals say it quickly got out of hand, and one of the men reached for a gun. The victim was shot in the face.
As several witnesses watched, including the victim’s brother, the bullet ended Angelo’s life.
“Guy with a hoodie on, a black hoodie, came up behind him. He looked over at him. As soon as he looked over at him, he shot him. It went in the mouth, came out the back. Happened right in my face,” says the brother.
The Marshals say Monte Robinson is the one who pulled the trigger.
He is the U.S. Marshals’ Most Wanted fugitive this week. He’s from Suffolk and has family there, but Deputy Marshals believe he has left that city to avoid arrest. The agents say family and friends are keeping him out of sight.
The Marshals say Robinson ran from the shooting to a nearby house and tried to hide evidence. But police figured out his identity and have been looking for him since March.
Deputy Marshals say Robinson is very dangerous and has ties to Suffolk street gangs. If you know where his is, call the Marshals’ Tip Line at 757-955-6821.
