19-year-old Janel Zachary, a fugitive wanted in Louisiana by the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office was arrested this morning in Las Vegas by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.  
A warrant was issued charging Zachary with attempted first degree murder (5 counts), armed robbery/use of a firearm, attempted armed robbery/use of a firearm, aggravated battery and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
