ORANGEBURG, SC (WCBD) — A man wanted by the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office in connection with a deadly shooting on March 4 has been captured in Pennsylvania.
Anthony McKennie, AKA Anthony Newman was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon. He was wanted on a charge of murder,
“Individuals committing heinous crimes such as this find the world isn’t big enough for them to hide when we’re after them,” Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said. “It can be a very small world.”
McKennie, 30, was located in a duplex in a residential area of Philadelphia after OCSO investigators learned the Pennsylvania native had relatives in that area.
U.S. Marshals and the Eastern Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force interviewed family members of McKennie but determined he was residing with acquaintances.
McKennie was then taken into custody without incident by Marshals and EPFTF officers.
OCSO is now beginning the process of extradition.
McKennie has been sought since March 4 when witnesses said the subject entered a St. Ann residence where 27-year-old Theodio Isaiah Glenn was located. The two engaged in an argument, witnesses said, before McKennie fatally shot Glenn.
District of South Carolina U.S. Marshal Kelvin Washington stated, “the U.S. Marshals Service is pleased to have partnered with both local and other federal agencies to bring Mr. McKennie to justice.”
OCSO Inv. John Stokes is leading the ongoing investigation.
