CHARLOTTE, N.C. — U.S. Marshals have arrested a man in connection with a murder in New Jersey last year.

Following a combined effort by U.S. Marshals Task Force members in both the middle and western districts of North Carolina, 32-year-old Kyle Rodriguez was captured in connection with the May 2013 murder of a man in Camden, N.J.

Officers say Rodriguez’s victim was shot several times in the head and torso.

Information was developed in the case leading investigators to believe Rodriguez had fled to North Carolina following the crime. Rodriguez was said to have ties individuals in Cabarrus and Mecklenburg counties.

Rodriguez was arrested shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday at a residence northwest of downtown Charlotte. At the time of his arrest, Rodriguez was in possession of numerous fictitious identification documents.

Investigators placed Rodriguez in the Mecklenburg County Jail where he awaits extradition back to New Jersey.
