HAMPTON CO., SC (WTOC) -

A Savannah fugitive who was wanted in connection with the 2012 Coastal Empire Fair shooting was arrested Friday in Hampton County by the U.S. Marshals Service Savannah Office of the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Jashavious Keel, 20, was wanted by Savannah-Chatham Metro Police and the Chatham County Sheriff's Office on aggravated assault and murder charges.

Keel was indicted by a Chatham County grand jury in September for these charges: two counts of felony murder, eight counts of violation of the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act, five counts of aggravated assault, three counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime, carrying a weapon without a license, possession of marijuana less than an ounce, and giving false information to law enforcement. 

Savannah Office of the United States Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force was given the case to locate Keel. An extensive investigation was launched by the U.S. Marshals and they got information that he had left Savannah and was possibly in Hampton County.

Task force members received information that Keep was in a vehicle in the area of Highway 68 and Interstate 95. They located the vehicle and he was arrested without incident.

Keel was taken to the Hampton County Jail to await extradition back to Georgia.
