Prosecutor: Shooting Suspect Has Fled Easton
Northampton County's First Assistant District Attorney says he's sure Naheem Adams has fled Easton following homicide charge.
A man charged with last week's fatal shooting in Easton's West Ward has likely fled the city, a Northampton County prosecutor said.
Police filed criminal homicide charges Saturday against Naheem Adams, the man they say is behind the fatal shooting of George Jeter last Friday night.
On Monday, First Assistant District Attorney Terrence Houck told the Express-Times that investigators are "confident" Adams has left the Easton area.
Houck also said the killing was the result of a grudge between Adams, 20, and Jeter, 28, but didn't give further details.
Jeter was found shot to death in an alley along the 1400 block of Butler Street. His death was Easton's third homicide of the year.
Adams is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about his whereabouts, or the shooting, is asked to call police at 610-250-6634.
