SUFFOLK, Va. (AP) — Authorities in Virginia have arrested a man wanted in a triple shooting that one of the victims recorded on Facebook Live.

The U.S. Marshals Service announced Thursday that its fugitive task force arrested 25-year-old Tony Roundtree of Norfolk on Wednesday as he rode a hoverboard in a neighborhood in Suffolk.

Norfolk police issued warrants Tuesday charging Roundtree with malicious wounding, maliciously shooting at an occupied vehicle and weapons charges. He's being held at the Norfolk City Jail.

The Facebook Live video created on July 12 shows three men sitting in a car, smoking and listening to music. Suddenly, a barrage of gunshots can be heard and the camera falls to the floor, continuing to record audio. Police said the three men in their 20s were hospitalized with "significant injuries."
