Gang Shooting Suspect Arrested

LAS VEGAS (AP) - U.S. marshals say a 19-year-old fugitive in a California gang shooting has been arrested in southern Nevada. Records show Peter Castillo was being held without bail Monday at the Clark County jail pending an extradition hearing following his arrest Saturday night in Las Vegas.

Marshals identify Castillo as a gang member sought by authorities in Bakersfield, Calif., on charges including attempted murder in an August 2008 shooting at an apartment complex.

Authorities say Castillo fired a handgun at a group of people, leaving a 2-year-old girl badly wounded in the leg and another person wounded in the arm.
