A man wanted in a North Carolina homicide was arrested in York City on Friday, Feb. 2, according to a release from the U.S. Marshals Service.

The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, alongside the York County Quick Response Team, located William Michael Pope, 40, in the 600 block of West Philadelphia Street about 6 a.m. Friday, the release states.

The Lexington (North Carolina) Police Department obtained a warrant for Pope on Jan. 3, charging him with first-degree murder after he fired a handgun into a home, killing a woman, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

The U.S. Marshals Service and the Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force pursued leads and found that Pope was staying at a home in the 600 block of West Philadelphia Street, according to officials.

He was turned over to the county's central booking unit for arraignment.
