A Waterloo man wanted in connection with a recent shooting incident has been captured in Wisconsin. Twenty-three-year-old Tavares Montgomery was located in Madison, Wisconsin, on Tuesday afternoon and arrested without incident.
Montgomery is accused of shooting 33-year-old Bernard Edwards in the parking lot of a busy Waterloo convenience store on July 20th, then fleeing the scene. Edwards was treated for a stomach wound at a nearby hospital and later released.
During their investigation, Waterloo police identified Montgomery as the shooter. They issued a warrant for his arrest last week charging Montgomery with willful injury, intimidation with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm as a felon.
Montgomery is being held in the Dane County Jail in Madison awaiting extradition to Waterloo.
