A man who was wanted for the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old boy in East Oakland in 2012 has been arrested in Kansas City, Mo., where he was working as a cook, a U.S. Marshals spokesman said today. Kejuan Hill, who’s now 21, was arrested by a task force comprised of U.S. Marshals and Kansas City police on Oct. 26 at a Denny’s Restaurant where he was working under his brother’s name, Deputy U.S. Marshal Mike Stokes said.

In mid-October Oakland police issued a warrant for Hill’s arrest for the fatal shooting of Charles Hill III of Hayward in the 2500 block of Church Street, near the Eastmont Town Center, shortly after 10 p.m. on March 23, 2012. Charles Hill III was pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later. Oakland police said the victim and the suspect knew each other but weren’t related.

Stokes said Kejuan Hill told officers that he’d been in the Kansas City area since the week following the shooting. Oakland police didn’t return phone calls today seeking information on Hill’s arrest. When police issued the arrest warrant for Hill last month, they said that even though he was only 17 when the shooting occurred, the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office plans to prosecute him as an adult. Hill hasn’t yet been extradited to Alameda County.
