HACKENSACK, N.J. -- U.S. Marshals and Hackensack police detectives early Tuesday captured a West Virginia fugitive who authorities said fired a sawed-off shotgun at two men at a used car dealership.

Ex-con Darrell Lamar Claybrook, 33, fled to his girlfriend's house on Atlantic Street, next to Hackensack University Medical Center, where members of the U.S. Marshals New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force and city detectives took him into custody around 6 a.m., city Police Capt. Timothy Lloyd told Daily Voice.

Police in Fairmont, WV, said the 6-foot-3-inch, 225-pound Claybrook went to an auto dealership with the shotgun on May 1 and fired it at a man he intended to kill, nearly hitting both his intended target and another man who was nearby.

Claybrook remained held without bail in the Bergen County Jail pending extradition proceedings on a May 2 fugitive-from-justice warrant.
