Boston murder suspect, Nicholas Antoine arrested in Georgia for killing Wilfred Peters, Jeff Montaque

Clayton County Police in Georgia have arrested a man suspected of two murders in Boston, Massachusetts. Nicholas Antoine is wanted in connection to the fatal shooting of two men in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston on June 30.

Antoine, 20, was arrested Friday at a trailer park in Jonesboro, Georgia. U.S. Marshals and law enforcement in Georgia assisted with the arrest.

His girlfriend, Latifa Brown, was also arrested during the incident.

The Clayton, Georgia County Sheriff’s Office said in a release in part that Antoine “found out the hard way that he had chosen the wrong county to hide in when he and his girlfriend found themselves surrounded at a residence in Hampton…”

Boston Police Commissioner William Gross said, “Members of the Homicide and Fugitive Units worked tirelessly on this case to not only identify the suspect who was responsible, but to track him down and arrest him while he was hiding in a trailer park in Georgia. I commend the great work of the Homicide Unit and the Fugitive Apprehension Unit for bringing justice to the families who lost their loved ones.”

Boston police had released a wanted bulletin for Antoine in connection to the June 2018 killings of 26-year-old Wilfred Peters, of Brighton, and 27-year-old Jeffrey Montaque, of Cambridge.

The sheriff says Brown was also wanted by the Stone Mountain Police Department for violating probation on a traffic offense.

Both suspects are now in the Clayton County Jail awaiting extradition.

Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene in the city’s Brighton neighborhood after police responded around 12:41 a.m. on June 30 for a report of two people shot in the area of Faneuil and Brackett streets.
