NEW BEDFORD — A man on the Atlanta police's most wanted list was captured Thursday morning in the city's South End.

State and New Bedford police arrested Brejon Nabors, 27, after he tried to escape via the roof of a residence at 267 Rivet St., state police said. Nabors is suspected of fatally shooting an associate on April 3 in Atlanta.

Troopers and officers, along with Massachusetts Parole Officers and a Department of Youth Services Apprehension Officer, went to the residence shortly after 7 a.m. looking for a different man wanted for a shooting in New Bedford. When the team went to the door of a second-floor apartment, they heard movement inside. Then, officers guarding the outside saw a man running on the roof, according to state police.

Officers blocked the man from getting off the roof. State Trooper David Reis spoke to the man and persuaded him to come to a window, where troopers and officers grabbed him and pulled him back into the house.

The man was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace. He refused to provide police any information about his identity. Other occupants of the building said they knew him only as “Midnight.” He was transported to the State Police-Dartmouth Barracks, where he initially refused to be fingerprinted. Troopers were able to fingerprint him, however, and a national fingerprint database confirmed his identity as Nabors, who had been put on the Atlanta Police Most Wanted List earlier this month.

Troopers contacted Atlanta police and confirmed the arrest warrant. Nabors was additionally charged as a fugitive from justice. He will be held while authorities arrange his rendition to Georgia to answer to the murder charge.

Following Nabors' arrest, state and New Bedford police arrested a 17-year-old New Bedford youth for Monday's shooting at Temple Landing where a vehicle was damaged, according to Lt. Nat Rodriguez, a NBPD spokesman and Police Chief Joseph C. Cordeiro. Police are prohibited from releasing the juvenile's name because of his age.

The teen is charged with discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building, carrying a firearm without a license, carrying a loaded firearm, malicious destruction of property and assault by means of a firearm, Rodriguez said.
