RENO, Nev. (AP) — A man sought in Reno, Nevada, in a shooting in which a stray bullet injured a teenage girl has been arrested in Albuquerque, New Mexico, officials said.

The U.S. Marshals Service located and arrested 31-year-old Carl Collins on Friday, Reno police said.

Collins is accused of shooting at another person involved in an altercation Monday as the other person drove away, police said.

According to police, the intended target wasn’t hit but bullets struck an apartment building, striking a girl inside her residence.

The girl was shot once and treated for a wound not considered life-threatening, police said.

Collins remained jailed Saturday in Abuquerque on a fugitive warrant and it wasn’t known whether he has an attorney who could comment on his behalf on the allegations.
