READING, Pa. (AP) — Federal authorities have announced the arrest in Florida of a fugitive wanted in connection with the shooting deaths of four men in an eastern Pennsylvania row house more than three years ago. The FBI and Berks County prosecutors said FBI Tampa SWAT personnel took 31-year-old Pedro Sanchez-Laporte into custody Tuesday morning without incident at a residence in Lake Alfred, Florida. Authorities allege that in January 2018, he and other alleged members of a drug-trafficking organization confronted and eventually opened fire on four other people selling narcotics in a Reading apartment. Three died at the scene and a fourth, the defendant’s nephew, died later at a hospital.
