A 43-year-old man wanted in the killing of an NYPD cop two decades ago was busted Friday in Flordia.
Lester Pearson, who was wanted in several states, was taken into custody in Jacksonville by US Marshals and local police, authorities confirmed Sunday.
Pearson allegedly shot off-duty Officer Vincent Ling in 1999 during a dispute. Ling was left paralyzed and eventually died from his injuries.
Pearson was a Jacksonville area rapper, who performed as Monsta Kodi, and had gone by the name Michael Davis, according to First Coast News.
He is currently being held on $40,000 bond in Duval County, Fla., jail records show.
In addition to the out of state charges, Pearson was slapped with a weapons possession charge.
