— A Fayetteville man wanted in connection with a shooting two weeks ago was arrested Monday in southern California, police said.

Members of a U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force arrested Jamall McSwain in Chula Vista, Calif., while he was walking to a car, police said. He was placed in the San Diego County Jail awaiting extradition to North Carolina on charges of attempted first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and possession of a stolen firearm.

McSwain, 24, of Dorado Circle, was wanted in a Jan. 2 shooting at 4703 Bedford Road that left one man wounded.

Police later tried to stop a Dodge Charger matching the description of a car seen leaving the scene of the shooting, but the driver sped off. The car crashed at Black and Decker Road and Hennardland Place, and the driver fled on foot.

    She should have known she wouldn't get away with it.

    These creeps just don't get it: if you commit crime, you're going to get caught eventually, no matter how far you run.

    And if you have a mug like that guy, you'll get caught even quicker.

    Glad this lady was finally caught. Hopefully she spends a long time behind bars.
