SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Police in Puerto Rico have captured a fugitive who was wanted in connection with a quadruple homicide.
The U.S. Justice Department said Thursday that U.S. Marshals and Puerto Rico police found Jose A. "Coco" Gomez Lopez at a motel in the town of Bayamon.
He was sought for his suspected involvement in the May slaying of four people in a flurry of automatic weapon fire, including a woman and her daughter.
Gomez Lopez was also wanted on 28 criminal charges, including weapons law violations.
He also had a $22.4 million bond placed him, what officials said was the largest in Puerto Rican history.
