(PENN HILLS, Penn.) -- A Penn Hills man wanted for the murder of 25-year-old Dumeir Walker outside a Mount Oliver store last year was captured yesterday morning in Youngstown, Ohio, where he was staying with relatives.

Acting on a tip from the Pittsburgh Fugitive Task Force, authorities in Youngstown nabbed Stanley Maurice Treadwell, 20, without a fight.

He was being held yesterday in the Mahoning County Jail, awaiting extradition to Pennsylvania to face a charge of homicide.

Pittsburgh homicide detectives said Treadwell shot Walker over a debt for crack cocaine that he believed Walker owed him.

On April 30, 2000, police said, Walker, his two children and a friend stopped at a store in the 300 block of Brownsville Road at 10:53 p.m. to buy candy. After leaving, Walker talked to a man, later identified as Treadwell, who had been standing outside the store.

As Walker's friend was helping the children into the car, police said, he told them he heard a gunshot and turned to see that the unknown man had shot Walker once in the head at close range. He then saw the man fire more shots at Walker as he fell.

The friend and other witnesses said the suspect ran down Bausman Street and turned right on Ibis Way, where he got into a Ford Bronco and fled.
