Fugitive wanted for Rochester shooting July 29 arrested in R.I.

A Dover man wanted in the daytime shooting of a man in Rochester last week was arrested Wednesday morning by U.S. Marshals who located him in a basement apartment in Pawtucket, R.I.

Kerry Joseph, 27, last known to reside on New York Street in Dover, was wanted on a charge of first-degree assault in the shooting of a 19-year-old man in the chest about noon on July 29 outside 40 Lafayette St.

.The investigation into the shooting spanned three states - New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island - and involved the cooperation of several law enforcement agencies and federal task forces.

Members of the Rhode Island Violent Fugitive Task Force quickly acted on the latest information investigators obtained and arrested Joseph, who tried to escape...Authorities said he went back inside the home when confronted by officers and hid, but was quickly located by task force members and was arrested.

Joseph will be arraigned Wednesday in Pawtucket District Court on a warrant charging him with being a fugitive from justice on the outstanding New Hampshire arrest warrant for first-degree assault...Police said the shooting was not random...
