MSP Fugitive Unit, US Marshals Task Force Capture Man Wanted in Connection With Fatal NH Shooting

Members of the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section and members of a United States Marshals Fugitive Task Force yesterday located and arrested a man wanted in connection with a Nov. 18 fatal shooting in Manchester, NH.

Investigators determined that GIOVANNE MORRIS, 31, was staying at an apartment at 244 Kennedy Drive in Malden. As MSP VFAS Troopers and USMS Task Force Officers knocked at the door and announced themselves, MORRIS went onto the fifth-floor apartment’s balcony and jumped to the balcony of the adjacent apartment. His jump was observed by officers positioned on a perimeter outside the building. The arrest team then made entry into the original apartment, went to the balcony, and gave MORRIS verbal commands to surrender peacefully. Eventually, he did so, and Troopers and TFOs who had entered the adjacent apartment placed him into custody.

Troopers transported MORRIS to the State Police-Medford Barracks, where he was booked as a fugitive from a New Hampshire state charge of being a felon in passion of a dangerous weapon. The charge stems from the fatal shooting of Carlos Rodriguez, 42, of Manchester, N.H., early on the morning of Nov. 18, 2023 near the Red Arrow Diner in that city. That shooting is under investigation by Manchester, NH, Police and the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office.

MORRIS, who had a last known address in New Hampshire, was arraigned in Malden District Court as a fugitive from justice. Prosecutors in both states will arrange his rendition to New Hampshire.
