Santiago did not disclose a motive for the shooting, why Paul was in Georgia.

"The arrest of this individual and others during recent months is illustrative of the strength of law enforcement collaboration in Monmouth County and beyond," Santiago said.

"This arrest would not have been possible without the efforts of our local U.S. Marshals New York/New Jersey Fugitive Task Force and their partners in the Southeast Region.”

Paul is awaiting extradiction to New Jersey.

While the projects have the support of officials who say they will stimulate the local economy and create renewable energy to power millions of homes, many coastal residents have raised concerns about how the projects will impact tourism and the environment.

The gallery includes competing photosimulations — those on file with the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and those recently commissioned by a group opposed to the wind farm development.
