MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- U.S. Marshals say they've captured 29-year-old Devonte Williams. This, as of Thursday, November 6th. Officials captured 26-year-old Sherrone Thornton on Saturday, October 25th.

Thornton and Williams are charged with attempted first degree intentional homicide -- party to a crime.  A criminal complaint says they beat a 17-year-old man at Annie's Discount Liquor on Capitol Drive on August 13th.

U.S. Marshals say the victim came to the store to collect money for work he'd done for the owner.  Instead of paying him, the store's owner, Syed Rizvi, told Thornton and Williams to "handle him."

A criminal complaint says Thornton and Williams dragged the victim to a rear storage area where they punched and kicked him.  The complaint says Rizvi then shot the victim in the back of his head.  U.S. Marshals say the victim has since undergone multiple surgeries and continues to suffer.

Rizvi was arrested and released on bail.  Thornton and Williams were still at large, and U.S. Marshals were looking for them.

    The man that shot the 17 year old bailed out? If that’s not a slap in the face. The other two punks are running scared? You can’t hide forever. Lost souls living a thug life what a waste of life. God bless the young man that was injured and god bless all the lost souls out here that don’t value life.
