Authorities arrested a suspect Wednesday in connection with the death of a 20-year-old in June at Pisgah View Apartments.

The U.S. Marshals Service Violent Offender Task Force, along with members of the Asheville Police Department, arrested a 16-year-old suspect Wednesday afternoon in a room at Motel 6 in Asheville.

On June 25, 2017, the teen was charged with murder in the death of Rondy Shields.

The Asheville Police Department requested the assistance of Violent Offender Task Force. As the fugitive investigation progressed, there were numerous leads sent to various law enforcement agencies throughout the United States, a news release said.

The suspect was transported by the Asheville Police Department to a local magistrate prior to being confined in the Buncombe County Jail pending his court proceedings.

“The interagency efforts displayed during this investigation are a great example of what can be accomplished when federal, state and local law enforcement agencies work together in pursuit of justice,” U.S. Marshal Kelly M. Nesbit said in the news release.
