A man accused of shooting two men in Texas earlier this year was arrested in Lansing.

The U.S. Marshals report that the suspect, Raymond Alvarado, Jr, 28, is charged with capital murder of multiple persons.

Alvarado allegedly shot two men in San Angelo, Texas, on Sept. 12. Three other persons were arrested in San Angelo and charged in the deaths the day after the shootings, according to the report.

The U.S. Marshals North Texas Fugitive Task Force, San Angelo Division, began assisting the San Angelo Police Department in the investigation in October. The investigation led authorities to believe Alvarado was in the Lansing area based on a Crime Stoppers tip.

The Lansing Area Fugitive Task Force was enlisted to help track Alvarado down.

On Thursday, task force members conducted surveillance at an address in Lansing, and after several hours, Alvarado was seen walking out of the residence. He was arrested without incident, the report states.

Alvarado is being held at the Ingham County Jail, and will be transported back to Texas after extradition proceedings are concluded. He is expected to appear in court on Friday.
