ARLINGTON, TX (KFVS) -

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation removed a West Tennessee man from the state's Top Ten Most Wanted list Friday after he was captured in Texas.

Michael Antrone Breashears, 25, of Dyersburg, Tenn., was wanted on two counts of attempted homicide, one count unlawful carry or possession of a weapon, one count possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and one count of reckless endangerment.

In early April, Breashears is suspected of being involved in a shooting incident which injured two people after a large crowd gathered outside a community center in Halls and a physical altercation erupted.

The investigation revealed that Breashears and 19-year-old Damarcus Nelson are suspected of being the two shooters.

Nelson is already in custody in Lauderdale County.

Breashears is a convicted felon and was added to the state's Most Wanted list on April 27, 2012. He will be extradited to Tennessee.
