After six months on the run, a Norfolk man was arrested in Maryland by U.S. Marshals on Tuesday.

Ricardo “Cardo” Spencer was wanted in connection to a July double shooting that resulted in the death of 25-year-old Justin A. Neal in the 1700 block of Greenleaf Drive in Norfolk.

After partnering with the Norfolk Fugitive Unit, U.S. Marshals were told that 23-year-old Spencer was hiding out of state with family members. Marshals in Dover, Del., were able to trace Spencer to an address across state lines in Maryland.

Spencer was arrested without incident at a home in the 2800 block of Pebble Beach Drive in Elkton, Md., police said.

Spencer is being held at the Cecil County Detention Center while awaiting his return to Norfolk.
