He had been wanted in connection with a shooting at a Lynchburg McDonald’s restaurant Friday, January 3.

The U.S. Marshals Service, Lynchburg Police Department, and other Central Virginia law enforcement agencies collaborated to take Overstreet in custody.

Overstreet has been charged with two counts of malicious wounding and two counts of using a firearm in commission of a felony.

Overstreet was wanted after police said he shot two employees at a McDonald's in the 2100 block of Wards Road.
