“They realized their back window had been pried open. A shovel was located in the yard when fingerprints were also found by forensics. the fingerprints inside and outside they found were linked back to Matthew Gordon.”

Matthew Gordon is new to the criminal justice system, but apparently well versed in hiding out.

He was living in the 12000 block of Largo avenue or has been seen in the 1200 block of east 32nd street – where his girlfriend lives.

“I still believe he is in one of those two areas and knows police are looking for him. he’s trying to stay low key out of sight,” said Sgt Solomon.
