The Luzerne County district attorney confirmed that a man wanted in connection with a deadly shooting in Edwardsville is now in police custody.

Authorities in Philadelphia arrested George Lee Barnes Friday night.

Police said he was armed at the time of his capture.

State troopers said he is responsible for shooting and killing another man in Edwardsville last week.

Investigators said Barnes killed Daron Trollinger at a development on Beverly Drive over drugs.

Barnes was also wounded in the incident. At first officers thought that he was a victim.

The district attorney in Luzerne County said her office is working on bringing George Lee Barnes back to our area as soon as possible.
