SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A man wanted in connection with a fatal shooting at a child’s birthday party in Massachusetts earlier this month has been apprehended in North Carolina.

Springfield police say 23-year-old Terrance Montgomery was arrested Tuesday by U.S. Marshals at a home in Laurinburg, North Carolina, on a fugitive from justice warrant.

The West Springfield man was wanted in connection with the fatal shooting May 5 of 23-year-old Paul Finegan.

Police previously said the shooting occurred in the yard of a home while a 3-year-old child’s birthday party was being held inside.

Montgomery faces murder and other charges when he’s returned to Massachusetts.

It could not be determined if the suspect has a lawyer.
