Authorities have arrested a man accused of shooting a driver on July 4th.

U.S. Marshals agents said they located Antoinne Hester, 22, hiding underneath a bed at his grandmother’s home in Riviera Beach. He was taken into custody and will soon be transferred to the BSO Main Jail, deputies said.

At around 5:40 a.m. on July 4th, four people were inside a green Kia Soul when, somewhere between Sunrise Boulevard and Sample Road, Bevins Bennett, 20, was shot, investigators said.
