PORTLAND, Maine — Law enforcement officials say a Massachusetts man wanted for a fatal shooting at an MBTA train station has been apprehended in Maine.

U.S. Marshal Noel March says 19-year-old Nhu Anh Nguyen of Boston was arrested without incident Thursday night in Portland. He’s charged as a fugitive from justice and is being held at the Cumberland County Jail pending extradition to Massachusetts.

Nguyen was wanted for the May 7 shooting of 19-year-old Derek Matulina at the Savin Hill MBTA train station in the Dorchester section of Boston.

Officials had been searching for him for 48 hours after reports that he was in the Portland area. He was arrested in an apartment by Maine Violent Offender Task Force, U.S. Marshals Service and Boston Police Department Fugitive Apprehension Unit.
