A Waco man has been arrested in connection to a shooting in south Marlin over the weekend that left a man "clinging to life."

Bray'shon Cummings has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and marijuana possession.

Mclennan County Sheriff's Parnell McNamara says as of Tuesday, Cummings has federal charges for felon in possession of a firearm.

The Mclennan County Sheriff's Office assisted the Fall's County Sheriff's Office in tracking the suspect after the FCSO obtained an arrest warrant for Cummings for a shooting that occurred at a party in Marlin Saturday night.

MCSO's Fugitive Apprehension and Special Task (FAST) Unit tracked him near Faulkner Ln. around 6 p.m. Monday evening.

Sheriff McNamara says Cummings is a convicted felon and was found with "AK-style pistol and several drugs" in the car he was driving.

200-300 people were at a pasture party in Marlin there when Cummings got into an argument with an unarmed man and opened fire, shooting him at least six times, according to Sheriff McNamara.

The victim was taken to the Falls Community Hospital and Clinic then flown to Baylor Scott & White in Temple, according to the Fall's County Sheriff's Office.

He underwent surgery and was "clinging to life" Sunday night, the Fall's County Sheriff's Office said.

Cummings is currently in the McLennan County Jail on a $1 million bond.

The US Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force assisted in the capture.
