WESTMORELAND, TN (WSMV) -

A man wanted for trying to shoot a child in south Florida has been arrested in Middle Tennessee.

U.S. Marshals found Richard Elwood hiding in a closet at his mother's house in Westmoreland.

On June 23, investigators said Elwood got into an argument in Coral Springs, FL, and fired a shot at the 10-year-old son of his ex-girlfriend.

The boy wasn't hit, but police said Elwood stole a vehicle and took off, ending up in Middle Tennessee.

He's charged with attempted murder and is awaiting extradition to Florida.
