SALEM - A man arrested at the Red Roof Inn was wanted in Massachusetts for the shooting death of a man in 2014.

Joshua Chevez, 23, of Methuen, Mass., is charged with murder for the Aug. 17, 2014, death of Mark Trussell in Lawrence, Massachusetts. The Eagle Tribune reports that Trussell was caught in a crossfire and shot in the head.

Chevez was arrested in Salem and charged as a fugitive from justice. He faces drug and weapons charges in New Hampshire after officers found crack cocaine, oxycodone pills and a loaded gun in the motel room.

He was arraigned Thursday and held without bail.
