TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A man wanted on attempted murder charges was arrested when he walked into a Trenton deli and was spotted by an off-duty city police officer who was working there as a security guard.

The Times of Trenton (https://bit.ly/1smfIGH) reports that the charge against 19-year-old city resident Michael Risher stems from a shooting Sunday in which a 38-year-old city man was struck six times in the leg.

Authorities say Detective Sgt. Darren Zappley was working at the deli when Risher came in around 8:30 p.m. Monday. He arrested the suspect without incident.

Rischer also faces weapons charges stemming from the shooting. His bail was set at $500,000 and it was not known Tuesday if he had retained an attorney.
