NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Federal authorities say a man who shot at two police officers in Puerto Rico has been taken into custody in New York’s Hudson Valley.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (https://bit.ly/1sOsBL6 ) a warrant had been issued charging Roger Gonzalez-Martinez with attempted murder after police say he shot at officers in 2014.

U.S. Marshals in Puerto Rico learned that Gonzalez-Martinez had been staying in Newburgh, 60 miles north of New York City. Authorities found him at a home in the Orange County city on Tuesday.

He was taken into custody without incident and arraigned in Middletown before being sent to the county jail. He’s being held without bail while awaiting extradition to Puerto Rico.

It wasn’t immediately known if Gonzalez-Martinez has an attorney.
