They got him

The Los Angeles Times reports that a former NBA player wanted in connection with a deadly shooting in Atlanta has been caught.
Former Laker Javaris Crittenton was arrested Monday evening at John Wayne International Airport on a murder warrant in connection with a slaying in Atlanta, the FBI said.

He was taken into custody without incident by a fugitive task force of FBI agents and Los Angeles Police Department officers, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. He was being booked Monday night by LAPD officers. Crittenton, 23, allegedly shot Jullian Jones, a mother of four, on Aug. 19 as she stood outside her home with two other people, authorities said.
The story also notes that Crittenton likely was intent on shooting someone he believed had stolen jewelry from him but shot Ms. Jones on accident.
