A man wanted in a fatal shooting in the Marshall-Shadeland neighborhood was arrested Tuesday after members of the U.S. Marshals Western Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force found him hiding under a pile of clothing in the bedroom of his sister's home, Pittsburgh police Lt. Kevin Kraus said.

David Micklos, 53, who lives in Marshall-Shadeland, was taken into custody on a warrant charging him with homicide, robbery and a firearms violation, Kraus said. He was awaiting arraignment in Night Court.

Micklos is accused of shooting Richard Didonato, 66, of the North Side, who was found in the 1200 block of Woodland Avenue on the night of Feb. 10. Police have said they believe that the shooting was drug-related.
