A Beverly Hills Police Department SWAT team arrested a suspect today that happened to be the suspect in last October's North Hollywood synagogue shooting. On the 29th of that month, Christopher Littlejohn allegedly walked into the parking garage of Adat Yeshurun Valley Sephardic Synagogue and shot and injured two men heading to an early morning prayer service.

The 37-year-old suspect was arrested at his Northridge home following a separate assault in Beverly Hills. Littlejohn's bail set to $2 million and is currently being held in Beverly Hills.
