BROOKLYN -

A fugitive suspected of firing a gun at police in an Ulster County hospital has been caught in Brooklyn.

Police say 42-year-old Joshua Stuart was found by U.S. Marshals Monday evening.

It happened hours after officials say he robbed a Brooklyn store clerk at gunpoint.

Stuart was considered armed and dangerous when he fled Ellenville Regional Hospital Friday morning.

No one was injured in the gunfire, which occurred in the emergency department and involved a patient.
