Man wanted for capital murder in Converse arrested

Joshua Eric Williams, 21, was arrested Wednesday in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO – A man wanted for capital murder in Converse was arrested in San Antonio, the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force said Wednesday.

Joshua Eric Williams, 21, was found in an apartment in the 2500 block of Babcock Road on the city's Northwest Side.

Williams is accused of shooting and killing a man at an apartment complex during an alleged drug deal on Dec. 1, 2015. Arrest reports said Williams fled the scene in a getaway vehicle and subsequently struck another vehicle as he exited the apartment complex.

“Williams was on the run for quite some time, but our task force officers didn’t give up on the hunt, nor did they let him catch his breath,"  Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas said. "It was only a matter of time before our task force officers locked in on his location and affected the arrest.”  

Williams is currently being held in custody at the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.
