WORCESTER – A city man being sought for allegedly shooting another man multiple times outside a local pub in 2014 was added Tuesday to the Massachusetts State Police’s list of most wanted fugitives.
Victor D. Kelley, 29, no address provided, is wanted on a warrant obtained by city police charging him with assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and firearms violations.
The shooting occurred shortly after 1 a.m., Oct. 1., when a gunman shot the victim multiple times outside the Diamond Inn on Grafton Street. Responding police officers found the male victim on the ground suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and observed a male suspect running from the scene, police said. The officers pursued in the direction the suspect had run but could not locate him.
The shooting victim was transported to a local hospital and treated for serious injuries. Police subsequently identified Mr. Kelley as the gunman and obtained the warrant for his arrest. Twenty-seven years old at the time of the shooting, Mr. Kelley lived in the city and also has ties to Maryland, police said. His nickname is Buster.
He is described as being 6’1″ tall and when last seen weighed about 150 pounds with a thin build. He is black, with black hair and brown eyes and has a tattoo of his initials “VK” on the right side of his neck. His left forearm is completely inked with tattoos and he has additional tattoos on his left bicep and left shoulder, state police said in a news release.
Known to have had access to firearms in the past, Mr. Kelley should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who sees Mr. Kelley is asked to call 911 or call the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section at 1-800-KAPTURE (1-800-527-8873) with information about him or his whereabouts.
