A man is in Cobb County jail awaiting extradition to Boston, where authorities there say he was involved in a “brazen daytime shooting” that left a 20-year-old man dead.

Keith Anthony Cousins was arrested in a unit at the Campus Edge apartment complex right by Kennesaw State University’s Marietta campus Friday at 7:30 a.m., according to a warrant by a Cobb sheriff’s deputy.

The warrant lists him as living in the Marietta apartment, but police didn’t say how long he’d been there.

Cousins has been charged as a fugitive from justice wanted on a homicide count and has no bond.

The 30-year-old Cousins, and another man now in custody, are accused of shooting 28-year-old Christopher Austin at 10 a.m. June 28 in Dorchester, according to Boston police.

Austin died several days later at a hospital.

Police said Boston homicide detectives have already headed down here to interview Cousins.
