HOLLAND, Michigan — The Allegan County Prosecutor's Office authorized a five-count warrant for a man suspected in a June fatal shooting in Holland. After a two-month search, he was arrested on Aug. 29.

Thaddeus Cortrez Wilson of Holland was arrested for the shooting death of Joseph Roberts.

He's facing the following counts:

  1. Homicide – Open Murder
  2. Felony Firearm
  3. Possession with Intent to Deliver Cocaine
  4. Possession with Intent to Deliver Methamphetamine
  5. Felon in Possession of a Firearm

U.S. Marshals searching for Wilson discovered he may be in Williamson County, Illinois and alerted local police. The county's Sheriff's Office found him and he was taken into custody without incident Monday.

Wilson is being held in Illinois without bond and will have an extradition hearing soon.

The shooting happened on June 19 at an apartment complex at 956 Lincoln Avenue. 

Officers found Roberts suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. 

Investigators believe an argument between the suspect and victim likely preceded the shooting and that 'many potential witnesses' left the complex prior to their arrival.
