TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - A man wanted in connection with a 2017 homicide and carjacking in Orlando was arrested Wednesday after turning himself in at a Tallahassee fire station, police said.
Antwaun Streeter, 33, was on the run for almost 17 months after being named a person of interest in the shooting death of Radeya Haughton.
According to an arrest affidavit, Streeter told firehouse staff that he wanted to turn himself in because he was wanted on a warrant. Police were called and Streeter was detained.
Authorities said Streeter had three counterfeit bills totaling $130 on him, and he said he did not want to talk about the reason he was wanted.
Streeter said he had hitchhiked from Orlando to Tallahassee about three weeks ago and had been sleeping in the woods.
According to investigators, Haughton was shot and killed on Halloween 2017. The mother of three was a workforce management consultant.
Police believe Streeter is also responsible for shooting another woman while trying to carjack her at the same location on Vista Largo Drive.
An 80-year-old woman was also injured when she was thrown out of her car and was held at gunpoint, police said.
Haughton's family told News 6 they are "happy and relieved" Streeter is in jail so he can't hurt more people.
It's unclear where Streeter was or what he had been doing in the past year and a half. News 6 spoke to his family who said they had no indication of where he was and had thought he was dead.
Streeter was arrested on charges of attempted first-degree murder, homicide and armed carjacking. He's being held without bond at the Leon County Jail in Tallahassee. It's unknown when investigators will transfer him back to Orange County to face these charges.
