A teenage fugitive who’s been on the run for more than two weeks has been arrested in Nashville.

Kuyvonta Cain was taken into custody early Wednesday morning and charged with four counts of  aggravated assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury. He was taken into custody at an apartment off of 1st Avenue South in the Tony Sudekum public housing development.

The 19-year-old had been wanted in a shooting that injured an innocent bystander back in early September

Officials with Metro Nashville Police said Cain shot into a car full of innocent people that included a 6-year-old and a woman - whose head was grazed by one of the flying bullets. 

Cain has been arrested more than 70 times.

He was also one of the teens who escaped the Woodland Hills Youth Development Center two years ago, and was on the run for a month before he was captured.

Back in May, he was charged with attempted murder after a shooting that seriously injured a man in Nashville but the charges were dropped.  

In September 2015, he was arrested on aggravated robbery and aggravated assault charges, which were later reduced to misdemeanors in court. He received a 90-day sentence.

Another charge was dismissed in May stemming from an incident in April when he was charged with aggravated assault for allegedly pulling a pistol on his father during an argument over smoking marijuana.

Cain's bond was set at $50,000. He's been scheduled to appear in court at 12:30 p.m. Friday for a review.
