LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) - Federal agents and Massachusetts police have arrested a man accused of killing a Dominican Republic narcotics officer and wounding a second officer in 2013.

Authorities say 26-year-old Cristian Aguasvivas was arrested Friday afternoon in Lawrence.

Officials say Aguasvivas is wanted in the Dominican Republic for the May 12, 2013, shooting death of an officer of that country’s National Drug Control Agency and the non-fatal shooting of a second officer from the same agency. The officers were trying to arrest Aguasvivas on narcotics charges.

Authorities found Aguasvivas in Lawrence Friday after discovering that he was using a fake identity card.

Federal immigration officials are detaining Aguasvivas and working to extradite him to the Dominican Republic.

Aguasvivas’ response to the allegations isn’t known. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
