The New Jersey State Police Fugitive Unit arrested a man who was man sought in a Pennsylvania movie theater shooting that killed a man and wounded a female bystander.

Anu-Malik Johnson, 21, faces homicide, aggravated assault and weapons charges stemming from the Dec. 2 shooting of 22-year-old Andre White Jr. at a Regal Cinema in West Manchester.

State police and the U.S. Marshal Service arrested Johnson without incident at a home in Pennsville early Wednesday morning, along with another man wanted for a separate shooting also in Pennsylvania.

Officials will now request Johnson be extradited back to Pennsylvania, though it's not clear when a hearing will be scheduled or if he has retained an attorney.

Authorities have described Johnson as “an extremely dangerous human being.”
