The suspect wanted in connection to a double shooting on Easter Sunday in Lynn, Massachusetts that killed one person and injured another has been captured.

Massachusetts state police announced on Twitter Wednesday morning that they captured William Cash, 44, in Weymouth, Massachusetts, late Tuesday night.

Cash has had several previous convictions for armed robbery, assault and battery and drug trafficking.

The shooting occurred at approximately 3:10 p.m. on April 16 in front of 25 Exchange St.
