A man wanted for allegedly shooting another man to death outside a trendy bar at Northern Liberties’ Piazza at Schmidt’s complex earlier this month was arrested Tuesday in Texas, authorities said.

Steven Miller, 22, was pulled over in Houston by U.S. Marshals and officials from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and arrested without incident, according to U.S. Marshals Eastern District of Pennsylvania Supervisory Deputy James Burke.

Police say Miller, who court records show has prior arrests for illegal firearms possession, shot Maurice Kimble, 24, of Upper Darby, several times after an argument broke out between the two men on the patio at PYT bar. Kimble collapsed in the courtyard at the Piazza and was rushed to the hospital, where he later died of his injuries.

After Kimble’s slaying, U.S. Marshals in Pennsylvania developed information that indicated Miller had fled to Texas. On Tuesday, the accused killer was being held at a Harris County jail awaiting extradition back to Philadelphia.
