A man wanted for allegedly killing his girlfriend in Union City a few weeks ago has been arrested.

U.S. marshals took 32-year-old Irwin Dresbach into custody Monday night.

Dresbach was wanted for fatally shooting 25-year-old Jennifer Gatewood at a hotel in Union City on April 5.

Marshals found Dresbach at an Atlanta hotel off Virginia Avenue in College Park.

After encountering Dresbach armed in his hotel room, a brief standoff ensued and marshals were able to get him to drop the weapon, but he continued to be combative, according to authorities.

Dresbach was taken into custody after a short struggle and the weapon was secured without further incident.
