Farrakhan Muhammad was arrested by US Marshals on Wednesday in Florida, according to ABC News reporter Aaron Katersky.

Police told CBS New York that Muhammad was trying to shoot his brother, but missed and instead shot a 23-year-old tourist from Rhode Island, and a 43-year-old woman from New Jersey, and a four-year-old girl who was shopping with her family.

Police said Muhammad was an illegal street vendor, adding that an argument with his brother over where to sell goods sparked the shooting.
