Police extradited a 26-year-old man from a maximum-security prison Wednesday afternoon on charges of a 2011 murder and attempted murder in Norwich.

Daquan R. Holmes, of 185th Street, Queens, N.Y., was extradited on a governor’s warrant from Five Points Correctional Facility in Romulus, N.Y., where he was serving a sentence for an unrelated armed robbery.

Holmes was charged in the May 21, 2011 fatal shooting of Johnny Amy on Franklin Street, Norwalk, and the attempted murder of another victim, police said.

After the shooting, police conducted an unsuccessful multi-state search.

Holmes fled to Queens, N.Y. and was arrested shortly thereafter.

He is being held on a $1 million bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in Norwich Superior Court on June 20.
