NEDROW, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say police have captured a fugitive sought for firing a gun near firefighters while they battled a blaze on the Onondaga Indian Reservation earlier this month.

The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office says its SWAT team, state police and parole officers, and U.S. Marshals took 26-year-old Corey Redmond into custody without incident around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at a relative’s home on the Onondaga Nation, just south of Syracuse.

Police had been looking for Redmond since he fired a handgun into the air on April 7 after deputies and firefighters arrived at the scene of a mobile home fire. He also had been wanted for previous run-ins with the law in the Syracuse area.

He’s being held in the county Justice Center. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer.
