U.S. Marshals have arrested a Fairmont man who authorities said shot at another man.

Darrell Lamar Claybrook, 33, was taken into custody Tuesday morning without incident in New Jersey, according to a press release issued by U.S. Marshals. He was found at a home in Hackensack.

Detectives said that Claybrook traveled to the East Side Motors used car lot on May 1, intending to shoot a man. While at the car lot, authorities said Claybrook shot into the store with a shotgun, nearly striking his intended target and another man.

Authorities had been searching for Claybrook for more than a week after Fairmont police charged him with wanton endangerment. A warrant was then issued for his arrest, according to U.S. Marshals.

Claybrook has previously been convicted of other felony crimes, including delivery of a controlled substance.

Claybrook will appear in a New Jersey court before returning to West Virginia. If convicted, he could face up to five years in prison.
