Accused Murderer Caught in Florida

MAY 11, 2005 -- After fleeing up and down the eastern seaboard, a man accused of a murder in Wilmington is now in custody.

Jason Gary is wanted for the murder of Shamarr Brown. He was shot on Independence Boulevard near Westfield Shoppingtown last month.

Authorities say Gary then left town for New York where his mother lives. Wednesday morning, officials in Jacksonville, Florida caught up with him.

An investigator from Wilmington is flying to Florida Thursday to interview Gary. He could be back in court in New Hanover County as soon as next week.
