U.S. Marshals locate second man connected to April Huntington shooting,

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — A man connected to a Huntington shooting in April was taken into custody in Michigan this month and has been relocated to Cabell County.

The Huntington Police Department said Rafael Solomon Jr. was found and arrested in Detroit earlier this month by the U.S. Marshal’s Service Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team, about a month following an April 5 shooting that killed Jermaine M. Johnson, 41, of Huntington.

Solomon was extradited to Cabell County Wednesday, May 24. He’s facing a murder charge.

Solomon, along with Antonio J. Roland, who’s already been taken into custody by U.S. Marshals, are accused of fatally shooting Johnson in the 700 block of Marcum Terrace. Johnson later died that day at a local hospital from multiple gunshot wounds.

U.S. Marshals took Roland into custody in the Detroit area on April 12. He’s also been charged with murder.

Solomon was booked into the Western Regional Jail where he is being held without bond.

Huntington Police said a preliminary hearing for Solomon has been scheduled for May 31.
