    Police say they have captured the suspect responsible for shooting a Temple University student in February.

    Authorities arrested 33-year-old Jermill Edwards on the 2000 block of West Ontario Street in North Philly around 9 a.m. Friday, according to the U.S. Marshalls, who helped track down the suspect.

    Investigators say Edwards fired shots after a brawl that began at the Let Out nightclub on the 1600 block of Cecil B Moore Avenue, near Temple's campus, spilled onto the street around 2 a.m. on Feb. 23.

    A stray bullet struck the 21-year-old Temple student, who was about a block away from the scene.

    At least 29 shell casings were on the ground after the shooting, according to police.

    Edwards is facing charges related to the Feb. 23 shooting and for struggling with police during his arrest.
