A Hagerstown man wanted for attempted murder was arrested and taken into custody Friday, May 31, on charges stemming from a 2021 shooting at Club Aura in Martinsburg, West Virginia.

A warrant was issued out of Berkeley County for Justin Broadus, 36, of Hagerstown on May 17. The warrant charged Broadus with Attempted Murder, Conspiracy to Attempt Murder, Endangerment and Conspiracy to Wanton Endangerment with a Firearm.

On May 31, Broadus was located and taken into custody without incident in the 300 block of Central Avenue in Hagerstown with assistance from the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office, the Hagerstown Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service.
