Police in Texas say the man they were looking for following a deadly shooting that killed two people inside a fast-food restaurant is in custody.

Oved Bernardo Mendoza Argueta, 37, was being sought Wednesday evening after a shooting that happened at a Chick-fil-A in the 5300 block of North MacArthur Boulevard in Irving, police announced on Facebook. 

“We can confirm that the suspect was taken into custody early this morning,” a spokesperson for Irving Police Department told Fox News Digital Thursday morning. 

During the manhunt, police released a photograph of Mendoza Argueta alongside a picture of the 1997 Honda 4-door car he was last seen driving.
