HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - The Huntsville Police Department, along with the help of the U.S. Marshal's Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force, made two arrests in connection to shooting incidences earlier this month.

Brandon Javon Woods, 18, was arrested in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Wednesday. Officials said they believe he is connected to the March 17th shooting on Union Drive in Huntsville. Woods will be extradited to Alabama.

Huntsville Police arrested 17-year-old Lamarcus Adams, Thursday, in connection to the same shooting. He was booked into the Madison County Jail and is being charged as an adult. Officials said Adams was armed with a handgun at the time of his arrest, but he was taken into custody without incident.

Both Woods and Adams are charged with first degree assault.

Huntsville Police believe the March 17th shooting on Union Drive is related to a series of shootings that occurred in the city between March 13-15.

"Some of those cases are connected and the victims have been somewhat uncooperative, but the public stepped up provided information," said Chief Lewis Morris. "Investigators have done a great and determined who the parties involved are and we've determined that some of them are connected and we're still working to resolve the rest of them."

Chief Morris said with the help of the public, investigators are still working to determine if the other shootings are connected, but they said they believe up to four of them could be related.

"To have the public provide information to us is just invaluable. Every one of these shootings people witnessed it, people knew what happened and I'm just very proud that they feel comfortable enough to call the police department because they're tired of it frankly, I believe. And we're going to do everything we can to work with them and determine who the offenders are and make these streets safe."
