Suspect in deadly downtown Austin shooting arrested in Atlanta

The man who police believe shot and killed a woman on 6th Street and injured three others has been arrested in Atlanta.

The local U.S. Marshals Office in Atlanta has confirmed that Endicott McCray was arrested this morning at 9:45 a.m. without incident. It says that U.S. Marshals in Austin asked them for help when McCray was identified as the alleged shooter and it had been determined that McCray had left Texas.

An intensive manhunt began for McCray in the Atlanta area and he was arrested near the MARTA bus station in East Point. Officials say he was seen walking down the sidewalk and had changed his appearance by cutting his hair.

McCray is believed to be the person who shot and killed 30-year-old Teqnika Moultrie just after 2 a.m. on July 31 in the 200 block of East 6th Street.

Three other women were also injured and taken to the hospital with serious but non life threatening injuries. Another person was shot but refused treatment at the scene.
