NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- The man who prosecutors say shot and killed three people at a northern New Jersey strip club on Christmas morning has been captured at his mother's home in Florida.

Anthony Ambrose, chief of detectives for the Essex County Prosecutor's Office, tells The Star-Ledger that 19-year-old Anthony Fields of Newark was arrested in Orlando early Sunday by FBI agents. Ambrose said his office plans to have Fields extradited to New Jersey, where his bail will be $2 million.

Fields faces three counts of murder and two counts of aggravated assault in the shooting at Slick's Go Go Bar in Irvington, about 15 miles west of New York City.

Authorities say the shooting occurred when Fields apparently tried to enter the bar with a gun but was stopped by a bouncer.
