A wanted Texas murder suspect is now in custody in Oregon.

The U.S. Marshals Service asked for the public’s help Monday locating 21-year-old Jonathan Green.

Green is accused of shooting and killing a man in Houston in March 2016.

He was arrested and charged in the case, but authorities said he was given a bond, released and went on the run after cutting off his ankle monitor.

Authorities have been searching for Green since September 2016.

This week, investigators said they had reason to believe he was in the Salem area.

After FOX 12 reported on the case Monday, a U.S. Marshals Service spokesman said the agency received a tip from a viewer that led to Green’s arrest in Keizer on Tuesday morning.

Green was arrested at a home on the 600 block of Greenwood Drive Northeast and booked into the Marion County Jail.
