Quenton Martez Dodson was taken into custody on Detroit's west side at about 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to Ypsilanti Police.
The arrest occurred "without incident," according to a news release.
Assisting Ypsilanti Police were the United States Marshals Service, Michigan State Police Fugitive Team and Detroit Police Department.
Dodson, 24, is accused of shooting three people during a drug sale in the 300 block of Jarvis on March 23. The location is near Dodson's home.
The shooting evolved after "a dispute over what exactly they were supposed to be getting," during the buy, Ypsilanti Detective Sgt. Troy Fulton told AnnArbor.com on Saturday.
The victims, ages 18 to 20, were in critical condition but stabilized in the hours after the shooting. A fourth person with them was not harmed.
"All three victims continue to recover from their injuries sustained during this incident," according to the release.
Police obtained a 13-count warrant against Dodson early this week.
Among the crimes Dodson is being charged with are three counts of assault with intent to murder, three counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, four counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and one count each of carrying a concealed weapon, being a felon in possession of a firearm and a felony firearm charge. Walker stated Dodson is considered armed and dangerous.
He's being held in the Washtenaw County Jail until he can be arraigned on those charges.
Dodson was sentenced in 2006 for two breaking and entering charges, once each in 2005 and 2006, according to Michigan Department of Corrections records. Both of those crimes took place in Washtenaw County.
