DENVER (AP) – A man wanted in the execution-style shooting of two men in Evergreen in 2004 has been captured in El Paso, Texas. Both men survived.

U.S. Marshals captured Robert Montoya Friday night following a joint operation between FBI and Mexican police.

Montoya is accused of attacking two men who were cleaning a house in Evergreen, tying their hands behind their back and shooting one man in the face and the other in the chest.

Montoya faces attempted murder charges in Jefferson County. Authorities arrested him on a federal warrant of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
