GLOUCESTER Co., Va. - One of the suspects wanted in connection with the May shooting death of a local man has been arrested in Pennsylvania, the Gloucester County Sheriff's Office announced Tuesday.

Officials say 24-year-old Destin Dominique Moore of Hampton was arrested in Alleghany, Pennsylvania, on outstanding charges of 1st Degree Murder (as a principal in the second degree), Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony (as a principal in the second degree), Attempted Robbery and Conspiracy to Commit Robbery for the May 15 shooting death of 20-year-old Hezekiah Fauntleroy Jr.

On the morning of the incident, deputies responded to the 7700 block of Colonial Point Lane at the Colonial Point Apartments in Gloucester County in reference to a call concerning gunshots heard in the area. They found Fauntleroy lying unconscious in the parking lot after he had been shot. Medics arrived on scene and pronounced Fauntleroy dead.

The week after his death, Fauntleroy's sisters spoke to News 3 reporter Margaret Kavanagh, saying Fauntleroy and Moore had known each other for years. They said Fauntleroy, who was affectionately known as "Rabbit" to his family, was expecting his first child this summer.

A teen was also charged in connection with Fauntleroy's death. He was arrested on May 17 after turning himself in to the Hampton Police Division.

Moore was extradited back to Virginia.

Moore pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on September 7, 2021. He was originally set to be sentenced on December 14, 2021, but the sentencing sentencing was continued until March 14, 2022. Officials couldn't go into details of why the sentencing was delayed.

The other suspect, Amier Antonio Wynn of Hampton, who was 16 at the time of the murder and is now 18, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder on August 23, 2021. He is scheduled to be sentenced on February 7, 2022.
