A man linked to the shooting death of a young woman inside a Philadelphia bar has been arrested, authorities said Wednesday.

Anthony Nelson was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals in connection with the June 28 killing of 21-year-old Jailene Holton at Philly Bar and Restaurant, Fox Philadelphia reported.

Nelson, a Philadelphia resident, was arrested in Atlantic City, New Jersey. He faces several charges, including murder.

Investigators believe Nelson was with a group of men arguing with a bouncer after they were told not to use the pool table because a league was playing.

The group was kicked out of the bar and one of the men went to a vehicle to get a gun, authorities said. More than a dozen shots were fired at the bar from less than 200 feet away, they said. 

Holton was struck in the head during the gunfire and later died at a hospital. 

A second victim was injured by broken glass and treated at a hospital. Holton's family said she was the designated driver for her group and only planned to be at the bar for 20 minutes. 

"When are people going to get fed up with this reckless shooting in the city?" her uncle told Fox Philadelphia. "Everybody's running around like it's the wild west out here."
