SCRANTON — A man charged in an attempted homicide in Washington, D.C., last month that left a woman partially paralyzed was captured at the Keystone Job Corps Center in Butler Township, the U.S. Marshals Service said Tuesday.

Gregory Harris, 23, known as Fat Greg, of Washington, D.C., was apprehended Friday on an arrest warrant issued in Superior Court of the District of Columbia on May 29.

The arrest warrant says Harris fired a round from a handgun that struck a woman in the neck in front of a liquor store on Bladensburg Road, Washington, D.C., on May 24.

According to the warrant affidavit:

A fight broke out in front of the liquor store when a spectator pulled out a handgun and pistol whipped one of those involved in the melee.

A large group of people, including Harris, ran from the fight. Harris emerged from an alley and fired four to five shots striking a woman in the neck.

The woman was treated at a D.C.-area hospital and suffered paralysis from her neck down.

A witness identified Harris as the gunman from a photo array.

It was unknown Tuesday why Harris was at the Keystone Job Corps Center. Attempts to reach Gerry McGroarty, Keystone director of education and training, were not successful.

Harris was charged by the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department with assault with intent to kill while armed.
