WICHITA FALLS, Tx (KAUZ) – The man wanted by U.S. Marshals for shooting a woman in the head in Texas has been arrested after Marshals said they received a tip.

Officials said a trucker picked up Anthony Graziano at the Flying J Truck Stop in Wichita Falls. He was dropped off between Whitesboro and Gainesville on U.S. 82. After dropping off Graziano, the trucker saw a news story with his picture and contacted U.S. Marshals who were in the area.

Authorities said they located Graziano at a convenience store and were able to take him to custody without any further problems.

Graziano had been on the run since he allegedly shot a woman in the head and then robbed a convenience store near Pottsboro, Texas, northeast of Sherman, on January 20th. He was wanted for assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon after a felony conviction.

    "I had mixed feelings you know, you're sad because you've lost a great person but you're excited for him," Faith Baptist Church Pastor Craig Lile said. "He was 98, or 99 years old and he was going home where he had been looking forward to being. Last few years he talked about how eager he was to be back with his wife."
