WALTHAM, MA — Deputy U.S. Marshals and RI Troopers ended a six-month, multi-state investigation joining MA State Police  in Waltham, MA Tuesday with the arrest of a man wanted in a TX shooting in Corpus Christi in May.

When Corpus Christi officers arrived at the scene May 13, they found a 29-year-old man with a life-threatening gunshot wound.He was transported to a local hospital by medics where he eventually succumbed to his injury. Corpus Christi Police obtained an arrest warrant charging Reid with Homicide.

After, Detectives from the Corpus Christi Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Violent Offender and Fugitive Task Force (GCVOFTF) developed information that Reid fled Texas and was possibly hiding out in Rhode Island.

In June 2021, the GCVOFTF contacted the Rhode Island Violent Fugitive Task Force (RIVFTF) for assistance in locating and apprehending Reid. Deputy U.S. Marshals and RI Troopers conducted an investigation spanned multiple states, tracking Reid to Waltham, MA.

Reid will be charged as a Fugitive from Justice and will returned to Nueces County in Texas to face the outstanding charges.

The Rhode Island Violent Fugitive Task Force is run by the U.S Marshals Service along with the Rhode Island State Police. The Task Force is comprised of members from the U.S. Marshals Service, the Rhode Island State Police, and the Warwick, Cranston, Middletown, Pawtucket, Portsmouth and Providence Police Departments who work full time to track down and apprehend the most violent and dangerous fugitives both within the United States and internationally.
