LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man wanted after a shootout with FBI agents in Lexington was arrested on Thursday.

According to the FBI, agents were in the process of serving a warrant to Antonio Cotton last month and gunfire was exchanged. Cotton fled after the shootout.

Cotton was originally wanted in connection with two armed robberies at Dollar Tree stores in Michigan. Investigators say Cotton zip tied employees at the retail stores and robbed them at gunpoint, combining to take nearly $12,000 from the two locations.

According to police, Cotton removed security cameras from one of the stores.

The FBI has not released details of Cotton's arrest.
