Suspected Times Square Shooter Farrakhan Muhammad Has Been Arrested

The suspect in a shooting over the weekend at New York’s Times Square that wounded two women and a 4-year-old girl has been arrested.

Law enforcement officials partnered with U.S. Marshals to apprehend Farrakhan Muhammad near Jacksonville, Florida, where authorities believe he was staying with his girlfriend, according to WABC-TV.

It is not yet known if his girlfriend will be charged or if she knew about the shooting. She is being considered as a person of interest in the crime.

“Today we got justice,” New York Police Department Commissioner Dermot Shea said.

Officials used surveillance video to retrace Muhammad’s steps to a hotel in New York, where he changed clothes and skipped town with his girlfriend after the shooting.Trending:

Police caught up to Muhammad and his girlfriend on Wednesday at a McDonald’s restaurant in Starke, Florida.

Bradford County Sheriff’s Office Col. Brad Smith called the arrest “uneventful,” according to NBC News. Muhammad is being held at the Bradford County jail.

Muhammad allegedly opened fire in Times Square on Saturday following a confrontation with multiple men, according to The Wall Street Journal.
