US Marshals nab fugitive accused of gunning down neighbor, friend, dog over barking

NEW YORK CITY – After nearly a month on the run, a New York man accused of executing his neighbor, her friend and her pit bull after a longtime vendetta over the dog’s barking was taken into custody.

Lenue Moore, 31, hid from law enforcement under a bed and then resisted arrest when they tracked him down to an apartment in Brooklyn on Oct. 26, per charging documents obtained by Fox News Digital from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. 

The Washington Heights resident “took steps to evade capture by changing clothes immediately after” allegedly shooting Jacqueline “Jackie” Billini, 57, her neighborhood friend Levaughn Harvin, 42, and the woman’s dog Zeus around 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 29, per a request to remand Moore.

 

Search warrants were carried out at Moore’s apartment and another apartment associated with him on 62nd Street, per the criminal complaint against him. There, police wrote, they found a Glock 9mm firearm that ballistics testing linked to the bullets found at the scene. 

Moore’s next court appearance, both for the charges stemming from the double-murder and those from the April attack, is scheduled for Nov. 2, per the District Attorney’s Office.
