Fugitive sought in slaying at Jiffy Lube caught in Fla.

Posted: June 14, 2012

DAVID REYES, who allegedly shot a man to death at a Jiffy Lube in Port Richmond, was arrested by U.S. marshals in Jacksonville, Fla., Tuesday morning.

Police said that Reyes, 29, approached Samuel Rivera, 40, on May 9 and got into a brief argument while Rivera was pulling a customer's car into the service bay at a Jiffy Lube on Aramingo Avenue between Castor and Venango.

When the argument escalated, police said, Reyes pulled out a gun and shot Rivera in the face and chest. Reyes ran toward Tulip Street as Rivera slumped over into the passenger seat of the customer's car, police said. Rivera was later pronounced dead at Temple University Hospital.

Reyes, whose last known address is on Percy Street near Pike in Hunting Park, will be extradited to Philadelphia to face charges, James Burke, a U.S. marshals supervisor, said.
