HOUSTON – More than five years after a deadly shooting in New Orleans, a man on the FBI's Most Wanted list has been arrested, Harris County Precinct 4 deputies announced Monday.

Robert "Lil Rob" Brumsfield III, 25, was wanted in connection with the robbery and death of a Loomis armored car driver in December 2013, the FBI said. The deadly shooting took place at 2331 South Carrollton Ave., a Chase Bank nearly a mile and a half from Tulane University.
