According to various news sources, law enforcement officials have apprehended a suspect in the homicide case of a woman, her companion, and her pet dog in New York City after an intense search lasting almost a month.
According to a report by WABC-TV, Lenue Moore, a 31-year-old suspect, was apprehended by law enforcement officials on Thursday. Moore was accused of shooting Jackie Billini, her pitbull Zeus, and her friend Levaughn Harvin on the street near 165th Street in Washington Heights on Sept. 29.
According to the NYPD, Moore has been accused of murder, criminal possession of a weapon, aggravated criminal contempt, and aggravated cruelty to animals in relation to the shooting that occurred in September.
People’s request for comment was not immediately responded to by the NYPD.
According to reports from WABC-TV and the New York Post, a prolonged dispute over the barking of a pitbull in Moore’s apartment had been ongoing for several months between her and her neighbor, Billini. The conflict between the two neighbors ultimately led to the tragic incident.

During a recent press conference, NYPD Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny shared that the individual in question had caused disturbances due to his dog, leading to friction with the victim. As per Kenny’s statement, the perpetrator’s actions also included breaking into the victim’s apartment and causing harm to both the victim and another female companion. According to reports, the victim suffered a broken arm as a result of the burglary.
According to WNBC-TV, Moore was charged with burglary and assault for an incident that reportedly occurred in April. Following the incident, Billini obtained an order of protection against him, which prevented him from contacting or approaching her. Moore was subsequently arrested and released on bail.
According to the police, Billini was concerned for her safety following Moore’s release from prison. To feel more secure, she would ask her friend Harvin to accompany her as she walked her dog down the street. Kenny, the police officer in charge of the case, explained that “Mr. Harvin was actually helping her walk the dogs because she was in fear for her life because of this guy,” referring to Moore.
According to a report by the NY Post, the incident occurred around 6:30 p.m. on the night of the shooting. Billini was out for a walk with Harvin and her dog when Moore approached them from behind, dressed in black and wearing a mask. He then proceeded to fire at least six shots.
According to Carlos, Billini’s nephew, she was an incredibly kind and caring person. He described her as someone who had a heart of gold and was always putting others before herself. Carlos went on to say that there wasn’t a selfish bone in her body, and that she truly embodied the meaning of selflessness. He also mentioned that she was a stunningly beautiful woman, both inside and out.
According to the GoFundMe page dedicated to raising funds for her funeral expenses, Jacqueline Billini was widely recognized for her vivacious personality, contagious laughter, and empathetic disposition.
According to the GoFundMe page, Jackie was a kind-hearted person who left a lasting impact on those she met. Her friends and family describe her as someone who was always there for them, providing unconditional love and support. Her sudden passing has left a deep void in the hearts of her loved ones and the community that can never be filled.
