A man wanted in connection with a shooting involving Surprise police has been apprehended in Colorado.

Surprise police say U.S. marshals assisted in locating 51-year-old Lonnie Smith on Thursday in Colorado Springs.
    
Authorities say officers approached Smith on April 9 in the parking lot of a business in Surprise because of his felony warrant for property and drug crimes.
    
Upon seeing officers, Smith allegedly displayed a gun. Officers shot at Smith, who fled on foot.
    
Smith then stole a bystander's vehicle and fled the scene.
    
Smith is currently awaiting extradition back to Arizona.
