BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- A man who opened fire at another man near the splash pad at Success Park last month, was nabbed Thursday by agents from the U.S. Marshal's Violent Crime Fugitive Force in Bridgeport, according to the Connecticut Post.

Edward "Mike" Myers, 50, who has been on the run since the shooting, was caught at his estranged girlfriend's home, the Connecticut Post reported.
