Anthony Fields, 19, of Newark, New Jersey, was being held on
$2 million bail after being arrested without incident by the FBI
at his mother's home in Orlando, Florida, said Katherine Carter,
a spokeswoman for Acting Essex County prosecutor Carolyn Murray.
Proceedings to extradite him to New Jersey will begin on Monday,
Carter said. He faces three counts of murder, two counts of
assault, and charges of possession of a weapon and possession of
a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
Fields is accused of opening fire at Slick's Go-Go Bar in
Irvington, New Jersey, after a bouncer at the club refused to
let him enter the premises.
"The bouncer noticed the weapon and told him he could not enter
with the weapon," Carter said.
Killed in the gunfire were Pierre Clervoyant, 34, of Elizabeth,
New Jersey, Woodley Daniel, 32, of Hillside, New Jersey, and
Mushir Cureton, 27, of Newark. Two others were wounded.
