The man wanted in connection with the May 22 shooting death of a Greencastle, Pa., man at a Hagerstown bar was captured Tuesday in New York City, according to a Hagerstown Police Department press release.
Stephen Lamar Urquhart, 26, whose address is unknown, was charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of Christopher Jason Ayala, police said.
Urquhart was being held Friday in New York City while awaiting extradition to Maryland, police said. Extradition could take more than a month, Lt. Mike King of the Hagerstown Police Department said.
Police believe Urquhart originally was from New York, King has said. Investigators believe Urquhart lived in Hagerstown for about six months prior to the shooting, King has said.
