Lenue Moore, the man wanted for the executions of two upper Manhattan dog walkers, is now in police custody, according to police sources. Moore, 31, had been on the run since last month’s killings of Jacqueline Billini, 57, and Levaugh Harvin, 42. The incident occurred on September 29 near the corner of W. 165th St. and Edgecomb Ave. around 6:30 p.m. Moore is accused of sneaking up on the victims and shooting both of them in the head. Billini, who was Moore’s neighbor, was one of the victims. Both Billini and Harvin were pronounced dead at the scene.
In addition to the human victims, one of Billini’s dogs was also shot in the head. Earlier this year, Moore had kicked in Billini’s door and threatened her with a hammer after the dogs’ barking had agitated him. Charges were filed against Moore in Manhattan Supreme Court for this incident.
Earlier this month, police searched the residence of Moore’s friend, Adam Micek, where they discovered a gun believed to be the murder weapon. As of late Thursday night, Moore had not yet been charged in the murders, according to police sources.
