A man wanted for murder in Jacksonville was caught after a standoff with U.S. Marshals in Tallahassee on Monday.
Officials said the suspect is connected with the August 12 shooting of a 14-year-old in Jacksonville.
A U.S. marshals official tells Action News Jax partner News 104.5 WOKV that the arrest happened at an apartment complex on South Adams Street.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Marshals in the area developed information that led them to believe the suspect was with friends in Tallahassee.
It took negotiators about 45 minutes to convince 24-year-old Bryan Goggins to surrender.
Goggins is accused of murder in the shooting of multiple people Aug. 12. A 14-year-old female was killed while standing outside a party in Brentwood.
JSO said there was a small gathering outside of a home on West 38th Street when an argument broke out.
One of the adults who was shot suffered life-threatening injuries while the other two adults are in stable condition.
Goggins is in the Leon County Jail and will have a first appearance and extradition hearing Tuesday.
