A man wanted for allegedly shooting his half-brother to death in North Carolina this April was arrested by Boston police and will soon be returning south to face murder charges, officials said today.
William T. Foye waived extradition at his arraignment as a fugitive from justice in Roxbury Municipal Court today, according to Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office.
Foye identified himself as Fonte Wynn when he was arrested by Thursday by members of the Boston Police Youth Violence Strike Force in Roxbury. But when he was being booked, his true identity and the warrant for his arrest were discovered when he was fingerprinted, officials said.
Kinston, N.C., Police Commander Greg Thompson said today his department has been looking for Foye since shortly before 5 p.m. on April 24. At that time, Thompson said, officers in the city of 28,000 rushed to Caswell Street to investigate a shooting.
They found Foye’s 28-year-old half-brother, George Gooding, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Gooding was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Thompson said numerous eyewitnesses identified Foye as the shooter. He said the two had a verbal disagreement that suddenly escalated into the shooting.
