MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The United States Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force has captured a man wanted for a recent Montgomery murder. Henry Tyrese Wallace, 20, was found Wednesday afternoon in Wetumpka.

Montgomery Police believe Wallace opened fire near a crowd of people outside the McDonald’s on Madison Avenue shortly after 9:15 Thursday night.

A warrant for Wallace’s arrest was secured on Friday. It states Ty’Riq Moon, 20, walked into the line of fire and was shot in the head. Moon was pronounced dead on the scene.

Police were called to the 2200 block of Madison Avenue around 9:20 p.m. Thursday. When they arrived, they found Ty’Riq Moon, 20, of Montgomery, suffering from a gunshot wound.

At the time of the shooting, Wallace was out on bond for a 2018 reckless murder charge. Wednesday, a judge revoked Wallace’s bond in the 2018 case due to his alleged role in last week’s murder.

Wallace was transported to the Montgomery County Detention Facility, where he is being held under a $150,000 bond in connection to this case.
