The Middlebury, Indiana, man was found with the help of the U.S. Marshals Service. He was charged last month with murder in the Feb. 5 death of Shamar Barnes.
The 19-year-old Elkhart youth was pronounced dead at a hospital after he was found with gunshot wounds to the chest in a parking lot in Elkhart after being shot outside a nearby convenience store.
A warrant for Thomas’s arrest was issued days later, based on security camera footage and information from witnesses.
Investigators said security footage showed Barnes was shot by the driver of a vehicle outside the store when Barnes approached the vehicle, The Elkhart Truth reported.
