HAVERHILL, Mass. – A Dublin man wanted in connection with a January shooting in Radford was arrested in Massachusetts Thursday morning.
Hector Javier Bido, 23, was taken into custody during a raid on an apartment in Haverhill, Massachusetts. The Massachusetts State Police Department of Violent Elusive Arrests, the U.S. Marshal’s Service and the Haverhill Police Department conducted the raid.
According to the Massachusetts State Police (MSP), authorities recently identified an apartment building where Bido may live. When they raided the apartment, they found Bido in a bedroom and arrested him without incident.
Police say they saw two firearms in view during the arrest. They confiscated a Smith & Wesson SD40 .40 pistol with a round chamber and a fully loaded 13-round magazine and a Safeside Tactical AR-15 with a fully loaded 30-round magazine.
Bido informed officers that there was a third firearm in his Dodge Challenger, which was parked in front of the apartment building. With the keys provided by Bido, the police confiscated a 9 mm Glock 17 pistol with a cartridge chamber and two fully loaded 17-cartridge magazines.
Bido was held at Middleton Jail in Massachusetts on Thursday. It is unclear whether he will not be extradited to Virginia.
Bido is one of three men wanted in connection with a January 24 shooting that injured one person. The other two suspects, Fabian Garcia, 30, and Alejandro Garcia Limon, 25, both from Radford, remain at large, according to Jenni Wilder, Radford Police spokeswoman.
Radford Police found a person with a gunshot wound arriving at the Sanford Street location of the shooting.
The incident occurred about 15 minutes after authorities received a report of gunfire in the 100 block on Madison Street. No one was injured in that shooting. The police did not say whether the two shootings were related.
In Radford, Bido is said to have been the shooter. He is charged with grievous malicious wounding, assault and mob assault, the use of a firearm in the commission of a crime, and two cases in which he unloads a firearm in an occupied apartment and brandishes a firearm.
Massachusetts authorities say he is being charged there in relation to the firearms.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Garcia and Limon is asked to call the Radford Police Department at 731-3624.
