NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A suspect accused of shooting two people inside Bronx-Lebanon Hospital has been captured by police.

Police say 19-year-old Michael Wayman was arrested Thursday night without incident in Harlem by the NYPD’s Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Police say Wayman opened fire Wednesday night inside the emergency room of the Bronx hospital, wounding two people.

A Bronx-Lebanon spokesperson said the fight stemmed from an altercation that a male patient in the ER had outside the hospital earlier in the day.

Wayman is charged with assault and weapons possession.
