An alleged MS-13 gang member on the FBI's "10 Most Wanted" list was captured Friday, authorities said, after going on the run in connection with a brutal 2011 slaying in New Jersey.

Agents apprehended Walter Yovany Gomez without incident in Woodbridge, Virginia, said Tim Gallagher, the special agent in charge of the FBI's Newark Division.

"Tips all along had generated interest in the Washington, D.C., area and a tip from the general public placed him in northern Virginia," Gallagher said.

He added that Gomez is expected to be extradited to Newark and face charges of murder and racketeering.

Gomez was a known member of the MS-13 gang from Honduras and entered the U.S. illegally, the FBI said. His name was added to the "Most Wanted List" in April and the bureau had offered a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading to his arrest.
