TEXARKANA, Texas (KSLA) - One of Texas’ 10 most wanted fugitives is now back in custody after being arrested Feb. 23 in Texarkana, Texas, state officials report.

Marques Jujuan Thompson, 20, was added to the Most Wanted list Jan. 27.

Officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) say Thompson was found at a home in Texarkana after being wanted since August of 2020. At that time, he reportedly violated his probation and fled from his last known Texarkana address. Since then, officials say Thompson has been implicated as a suspect in multiple shootings, including a fatal one on Jan. 12 in Texarkana.

Thompson was wanted for murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm, battery, stalking/intimidation, and a probation violation.
