Posted: Updated:

SAN YSIDRO (CNS) - A 38-year-old attempted-murder suspect is behind bars Tuesday after a team of U.S. Marshals caught up to him at hotel near the U.S.-Mexico border a few days after he dodged them in Chula Vista.

Alejandro Gutierrez, a suspect in an attempted homicide shooting in Chula Vista April 2, was arrested by members of a U.S. Marshals Fugitive Apprehension Team Monday afternoon at the Knights Inn at 230 Via de San Ysidro, according to a Chula Vista police statement.

His arrest on suspicion of attempted murder, carrying a loaded firearm in public and gang offenses came four days after he escaped marshals who spotted him in the vicinity of Second Avenue and Palomar Street in Chula Vista, according to police.
