U.S. marshals arrested a York City man in New York City on Monday in connection with the attempted homicide of a woman at a city gas station early this month.

Thomas Washington IV, 34, whose last-known address was in the 600 block of East Market Street, is charged with attempted homicide, carrying a firearm without a license, reckless endangerment and two counts of aggravated assault, according to the marshal service.

He was wanted for the Feb. 1 shooting of Tamika Goodwin, 30, of South Belvidere Avenue. Goodwin was sitting in a car in the parking lot of the Sunoco A-Plus, 260 N. Sherman St. when, at 2:05 a.m., she was shot in the arm by a bullet allegedly fired by Washington, police have said.

York City Police obtained an arrest warrant for Washington Feb. 8 and enlisted the help of the marshals. Marshals tracked him down in New York City, and authorities arrested him on a Bronx street without incident Monday morning.

Washington was turned over to the New York City Police Department for processing. He is awaiting extradition proceedings, the marshal service said.
