Salah Abdeslam, the “most wanted man in Europe” suspected in the Paris attacks, was captured Friday in an apartment in Brussels after the police found his fingerprints during a raid earlier this week.

Abdeslam evaded police for more than four months before authorities honed in the Brussels neighborhood of Molenbeek, where he was captured today. Though details are still scant, the raid reportedly ended in a shootout that wounded Abdeslam and one other person. Brussels’ deputy mayor tells the AP Abdeslam was shot in the leg.

Two other unnamed suspects were reportedly taken into custody during the raid.
