EAGAN, Minn. (FOX 9) - A man wanted in a deadly Thanksgiving Day shooting in Washington is now in custody after police arrested him in Eagan, Minnesota Wednesday, according to Minnesota and Washington law enforcement authorities.
Investigators believe 25-year-old William Oliver Holly is a suspect in the deadly shooting of 21-year-old Leaua Loto, who was killed following a pick-up football game at a high school in Des Moines, Washington. The game was a Thanksgiving tradition between family and friends, however, a fight broke out. One group left the area, but police say Holly returned to the school and "indiscriminately" fired shots. One round hit Loto. He later died from his injuries. Police say Loto was not involved in the original fight.
Earlier this month, the King County Prosecutor's Office charged Holly with murder in the first degree and set bail at $5 million.
After learning Holly was in Eagan, Minnesota, the law enforcement teams worked together to take him into custody. At 1:23 p.m. Wednesday, Eagan police executed a "high risk" warrant in the 1400 block of Shoreline Drive. Holly was the only person inside the home. He was booked at the Dakota County Jail for a felony domestic assault warrant in Ramsey County as well as the homicide warrant from King County, Washington.
Authorities are planning to extradite Holly from Minnesota to Washington.
