A Los Angeles gang fugitive with an extensive violent criminal record has been arrested in Nevada after a standoff with a SWAT team in Sparks.

The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force had been looking for 42-year-old Terry Williams since May, when he walked away from a halfway house in Las Vegas where he was under federal supervision after his conviction for felony possession of a weapon.

A member of the Compton Crips, Williams has a record that includes arrests in connection with attempted murder, drug trafficking, robbery and battery with a deadly weapon.

Federal agents and local law officers tracked him to a Sparks address Tuesday on the edge of Reno near Interstate 80.
