The victims of the shooting were a 23-year-old female tourist from Rhode Island, a 43-year-old woman from New Jersey and the 4-year-old girl from Brooklyn.

All three victims are out of the hospital and Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a Monday news conference they would "make a strong recovery".

Police have arrested the suspect accused of opening fire in New York City's Times Square over the weekend, shooting three innocent bystanders, including a 4-year-old girl, Fox News has confirmed.

According to New York City-based Spectrum NY-1, Muhammad was eating in his auto at the time he was found out and had only taken refuge in his vehicle (and the fast food chain's parking lot) because of an East Coast fuel shortage.

Officer Alyssa Vogel raced to the ambulance with the wounded four-year-old as the girl's mother followed behind them.

Police identified Muhammad as the suspect in the shooting on Tuesday and asked the public for tips on his whereabouts on social media. Muhammad's family made a public plea for him to turn himself in.

The U.S. Marshals Service caught up with the two on Wednesday as they were eating in a auto outside a McDonald's in Starke, Florida, police said.

Essig said Muhammad had changed his appearance since the shooting, shaving off some of his dreadlocks.

Video then captured Muhammad and a woman, believed to be his girlfriend, buying dog food and other supplies at a store in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

"Police found out that he was heading towards Florida after detectives found addresses linked to Muhammad", the outlet reported. Two dogs were with the pair when they were arrested, with French fries lying on the car's floor, police said.

Farrakhan Muhammad was arrested Wednesday in a McDonald's parking lot in Starke, outside of Jacksonville, where he fled with his girlfriend, police said. The arrests rested on various charges, including harassment and assault.
