NORFOLK, Va. - The United States Marshals are asking the public to help them capture a man wanted for a 2015 murder in Portsmouth.

The crime happened December 2, 2015 on Gateway Drive in Portsmouth. Police were called to the apartment complex and found the 26-year-old Monique Landis with a gunshot wound in her upper body. She died at the scene and now 54-year-old Darryl Faine was charged with Murder, Reckless Handling of a Firearm, and Possession of Firearm by Felon.

Since that day Faine has been on the run. The U.S. Marshals tell News 3 they have traced Faine in New Jersey, Maryland, Northern Virginia and specifically Jacksonville, Florida.

Faine is not like many wanted suspects. He held a sales manager position at a furniture store before this crime occurred. The Marshals think Faine may be using a fake name to stay off the radar of law enforcement.

A $1,500 reward is being offered to any citizen who can provide information that leads to Faine's capture and arrest. To report information call the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-WANTED-2 or you can email
