WILKES-BARRE, Pa. -

A man wanted in a fatal shooting outside a strip club in Elizabeth has been arrested by federal marshals in northeastern Pennsylvania.

According to authorities, Sharif Robinson, 27, of Jersey City, was taken into custody without incident Tuesday morning at a Wilkes-Barre home.

On April 2, Elizabeth police reported gunshots coming from a parking lot and saw a group of men, at least one of whom fired at them.
