WILLISTON, N.D. -- The suspect in the fatal shooting of another man outside a Williston bar over the weekend has been apprehended in Billings, Mont.

Authorities say the Montana Highway Patrol arrested 46-year-old Jonathan Peter Horvath Monday afternoon.

Rod Ostermiller, the U.S. Marshal's Service Chief Deputy for Montana, told the Williston Herald that Horvath was taken into custody after being spotted in a field west of Billings.

Authorities say 28-year-old Derrick Siegel, of Williston, died at a hospital after the shooting about 1 a.m. Saturday. Williston Police Detective Cory Collings said that Horvath was wanted on warrants for reckless endangerment and murder.

Collings says Horvath recently moved to the Williston area from Sandpoint, Idaho.
