An Alabama man charged with killing a man during a 2009 drive-by shooting was apprehended Tuesday in Niles.

Niles police stopped Ladarious Cole, 22, at about 1:21 a.m. on Robbins Road for a routine traffic stop.

Cole was indicted Feb. 11 in Macon County, Ala. for murder.

He waived an extradition hearing and Macon County Sheriff’s deputies said they are trying to coordinate transportation to bring Cole back from the Trumbull County Jail. Deputies said they have arranged for Cole to be picked up before April 19.

Court records said Cole killed Quincy Cooks, 26, on Oct. 24, 2009 during a drive-by shooting in Tuskegee, Ala.

The indictment says Cole caused Cooks’ death “by criminal negligence.”

According to a 2009 Tuskegee News story, three people were initially charged in the murder, but police said none of them pulled the trigger that killed Cooks.

The newspaper reported the trio, including the man who was driving the car Cook was riding in, were charged “because of the act they were engaged in when Cook was fatally shot,” the newspaper reported.

The newspaper reported five people were inside the car, including Ladarius Cole, who suffered gunshot wounds in the incident.

The Tuskegee News also reported law enforcement sources said more than three dozen shot may have been fired from several different weapons during the incident.
