GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - Authorities in south-central Nebraska have captured a man sought in a Texas homicide.

The U.S. Marshals Service says 30-year-old Jose Rivera, of Houston, was arrested without incident Tuesday night in Grand Island. He’s suspected in a fatal shooting during a January 2015 robbery at a convenience store in Houston. Authorities say a multiagency task force developed information that Rivera was at the Grand Island address where he was picked up.

Online records said Rivera remained in Hall County Jail on Thursday morning. It’s unclear whether Rivera has attorney who could comment on his behalf and whether Rivera will fight extradition to Texas.
