AMHERST, N.Y. ( WKBW ) A suspect in a Niagara Falls shooting incident is under arrest.

A tip call let police to a motel in Amherst Tuesday afternoon.

That is where they found 23 year old Jacob Taggart. He was considered to be armed and dangerous, and linked to a shooting in Niagara Falls.

Police made sure to take extra precautions when acting on this tip.

Heavily armed police surrounded the Boulevard Inn off Niagara Falls Boulevard Tuesday following that tip.

23 year old Taggart is wanted in connection with an April 25th shooting in the Cataract City. It was unclear why he was in Amherst.

Surrounded by police, Taggart eventually turned himself in, and was taken into custody without incident.
