TULSA (AP) -- A suspect in a Texas murder has been arrested while passing through Tulsa on a passenger bus.

Authorities say 18-year-old Eric Cavazos was taken into custody Thursday at a downtown bus station by members of the Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force.

Cavazos is wanted on a first-degree murder warrant in Bexar County, Texas. Officials say he is allegedly connected to a homicide in San Antonio as well as to multiple shootings.

Task force members identified Cavazos as he got off a bus at the downtown station. Authorities used a Taser during the arrest but eventually took him into custody.

Cavazos was booked into Tulsa Jail just after 6:30 p.m. Jail records show he is being held without bond.
