The man accused of shooting a New York City gas station clerk and a Philadelphia Parking Authority officer days apart was arrested Wednesday after a month on the run. 

Termaine Saulsbury, 39, was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Service in the Bronx at about 5 p.m., the agency said. He may have been living in a vacant house for more than a week, Fox Philadelphia reported.  

He was wanted on suspicion of attempted murder.

Saulsbury is accused of shooting Philadelphia Parking Authority officer Timothy McKenzie on Nov. 25. McKenzie sustained gunshot wounds to the ear and shoulder and has since been released from the hospital.

On Nov. 22, Saulsbury shot a gas station clerk in the Bronx that badly injured the employee, police said. Investigators in New York noticed the suspect in that shooting resembled the shooter who opened fire on McKenzie. 

Authorities believe both shootings were random.
