Rasjahnon T. Roberts was arrested early Friday by members of the Mountain State Fugitive Task Force, a division of the U.S. Marshals Service, who found him at a motel in Williamsport, Md., a spokesman for the sheriff’s department in Mineral County, West Va., told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
“The arrest was made without incident and he is currently being held at Washington County Detention Center pending extradition” to West Virginia, where he will face charges of first-degree murder, attempted murder and conspiracy, the spokesman said.
Authorities are still searching for a second suspect, Rasshammach Roberts, according to the sheriff’s office.
A barroom argument spilled into the parking lot of My Place, a private West Virginia club a short walk from a bridge leading into Maryland, in the early morning hours of Sunday, Sept. 4, they said.
Each Ryan brother was hit once – Ryan was pronounced dead soon afterward, and Richard is still clinging to life in a Maryland hospital, his family at his side.
Investigators quickly recovered the gun and identified both suspects.
