Extradition hearing for NYC man today
SUNBURY - An extradition hearing is scheduled this morning for a man wanted for homicide in Brooklyn, N.Y., who was taken into custody by U.S. marshals and police at a Coal Township home earlier this month.
Tyshawn Waddy, 20, of New York, will appear at 9:15 a.m. before Northumberland County President Judge William H. Wiest to determine when he will be returned to Brooklyn to face homicide charges.
County assistant district attorney Michael Toomey said Waddy is accused of killing one person and wounding two others in a June 29 shooting.
He has been held in the county prison in lieu of $15,000 cash bail since authorities arrested him at gunpoint at 12:30 a.m. Aug. 16 after Waddy walked out of 1011 W. Willow St. Toomey said Waddy has family living in the area, but he didn't know if any of his relatives lived where he was arrested.
If Waddy refuses to waive extradition from Pennsylvania to New York, warrants would have to be signed by the governors of both states before authorities could return him to New York.
Waddy also is wanted on a probation violation in Snyder County for failing to appear in court on burglary-related charges.
