One of two Rockford men wanted for a murder that happened four and a half years ago turns himself in.

Investigators announced that Johny McFadden, 25, surrendered Tuesday at the Winnebago County Criminal Justice Center.  He’s accused in the shooting death of 27 year-old Semarin Dubois.

The shooting happened July 4, 2013.

Officers Dubois had been shot near the intersection of S. Henrietta Ave. and Green Street.  He died at the hospital.

McFadden’s arrest comes just two weeks after the Winnebago County State’s Attorney said he was wanted for Dubois’ murder.  He’s due to appear in court Feb. 1 and is being held on a $3 million bond.

Officers are still looking for a second murder suspect, Shazariyah Hibbert.  He was being held in the Department of Corrections on unrelated charges, but released over the summer.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call police or CrimeStoppers.
