NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- One of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Ten Most Wanted was captured in Texas, authorities announced on Friday. U.S. Marshalls found Micheal Antrone Breashears, of Dyersburg, in Arlington thanks to a tip.

The 25 year-old was wanted on two counts of attempted homicide, one count unlawful carry or possession of a weapon, one count possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and one count of reckless endangerment.

The TBI said, back in April, he was involved in a shooting incident which injured two individuals after a large crowd gathered outside a community center in Halls back and a physical altercation erupted. The investigation revealed that Breashears and 19-year-old Damarcus Nelson were the two shooters in the incident.

Nelson is already in custody in Lauderdale County. Breashears is a convicted felon and was added to the state’s Most Wanted list on April 27, 2012.
