HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - A man wanted for a weekend Huntsville murder is in custody, police said Thursday morning.

Patrick Lee Terry, 47, was captured Thursday morning, a Huntsville Police Department spokesman confirmed. Police say Terry was located in a vacant house off Clifford Road just after 11:00 a.m.

Huntsville police and the U.S. Marshal Task Force worked together to locate him.

“During the course of the investigation they learned about an address affiliated with the suspect," explained Lt. Michael Johnson. "While they were investigating that address, in the past 24 hours that led them to this second address on Clifford.”

Police said evidence at the first address led investigators to a vacant house on Clifford Road where police found Terry.

Terry is accused of killing Anthony Fairley, 28.

Fairley was killed in a shooting around 12:30 a.m. Sunday on Seminole Drive near Binford.

Police said Fairley and Terry knew each other and had a disagreement prior to the shooting.

Online jail records listed his bond at $60,000.
