NASHVILLE, Tenn. – An accused murderer was arrested late Saturday night after three years on the run.

DeAndre Rucker, 24, was taken into custody at his wife's apartment in the Crestview complex on Thompson Place by members of the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force, along with Gang Unit detectives and SWAT officers.

Rucker is accused in the October 8, 2009 shooting death of Demetrius Riley on Richmond Hill Drive near Spears Road.

Police said Riley was walking on Richmond Hill Drive with a friend when two young men suddenly ran up behind him. One of the suspects fired and Riley fell to the ground.

Police said the second suspect then shot him several more times.  

Police said the motive was believed to be a gang dispute. The friend was not injured.

The investigation led to the identification of Rucker as a suspect. A second suspect,

Quincy Terrell Sharpe, 19, was arrested last August.

Rucker was convicted of attempted aggravated robbery in 2007 and received a three-year probated sentence.
