Three sought in Midtown Kingston home invasion slay

Kingston police are looking for three suspects in a Nov. 1 home invasion killing. According to police, Myron Moye Jr., 36, was shot and killed inside his residence at 38 West O’Reilly St. sometime around 2 a.m. It was the second murder in Midtown Kingston in a week.

According to police, cops received the call for a homicide inside the home around 2:05 a.m. on Nov. 1. When officers arrived, the woman who reported the attack led officers inside the home where they discovered Moye. Police administered first aid until paramedics arrived, but Moye was pronounced dead at the hospital.

According to law enforcement sources, a woman and two children were present in the house, but were unharmed in the attack. Police believe the murder was a targeted attack, not a random crime. The next day, police said they were looking for three unidentified suspects — three black males between the ages of 20 and 30, dressed in dark clothing and sneakers. One of the men is described as between 5’8” and 6’ tall with a thin build and medium complexion. A second suspect is described as between 5’5” and 5’8”, light-skinned with a heavy build. The third suspect is described as shorter than his companions with a thin build. All three were spotted leaving the home after the killing, police said.


Cops are also asking residents of the area around West O’Reilly Street and Mary’s Avenue to check security cameras for suspicious persons or vehicles in the neighborhood between 1:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 1.

Back on Oct. 24, an unidentified gunman shot and killed 27-year-old Daniel “DJ” Thomas on the corner of Cedar and Prospect streets. Police say they have not yet established any link between the killings, but they believe both were targeted attacks, not random.
