HICKORY, N.C. — A Charlotte man has been arrested in connection with a deadly shooting in Hickory last month.
On January 23, Hickory Police were called to a reported shooting outside a home. A woman called police saying a man outside her house had been shot and was not breathing. The victim, 23-year-old Andres Olsvaldo Moscotte, was pronounced dead at the scene.
About a week later, police said 22-year-old Jalen Jakee Witherspoon turned himself in for the shooting. On Friday, Hickory Police announced a second arrest in the case.
Steven Razelle Staples, 30, of Charlotte, was located by US Marshals Thursday. He was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
