SHERMAN, TX -- A man considered one the 10 most wanted in Texas was arrested in Sherman on Wednesday night.

38-year-old Norris Wayne Smith of Dallas was arrested at 212 North Andrews Street just before 8 p.m.

Authorities say Smith shot a man during a robbery in Waco in August. The man survived the shooting.

Sherman Police, the U.S. Marshals, the East Texas Fugitive Taskforce and the DPS Special Response Team worked together in the joint operation. They sealed off the area around 212 N. Andrews and surrounded the residence with S.R.T members from D.P.S. and Sherman police.

Negotiators then made contact with Smith by use of a public address system. Within a matter of minutes, Smith exited the residence and peacefully surrendered to the officers.

Neighbor, Nena Lujan witnessed the events unfold.

"They told him to put his hands up, and just walk backwards. One of the other police told us to get inside the house, so I just went inside the house. We heard all this stuff and I didn't want to get shot or anything," Lujan said.

Smith was transported to the Grayson County Jail and booked in for outstanding warrants.
