Patricko Davis, wanted in connection with the murder of 23-year-old Takeenen Williams on July 23, was arrested in Bakersfield, Calif., Wednesday night by the U.S. Marshals Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force. Davis was taken into custody without incident.

Williams was found shot near the Hub, which serves as housing for Art Institute of Atlanta students, on July 24. Davis is being held at the Kern County Jail in Bakersfield awaiting extradition. While Davis is an Art Institute student, he’s not listed as a Hub resident.

Following the shooting, the Hub, located at 6096 Barfield Road, was cited for numerous code violations by the city of Sandy Springs. Hub representatives are scheduled to appear before Sandy Springs Municipal Court on Sept. 19 after the case was postponed from Aug. 15. Art Institute officials have said they are looking to move their students out of the facility.
