      Federal Agents are always considered to be "on-duty." Even on vacation, they are required to carry a gun and badge.

            Heartbreaking, Agent Pettit's other daughter turns 15 this week...

            Driver arrested in fatal shooting of federal agent

            The man who police suspect killed a federal customs agent during a bizarre traffic dispute Tuesday was apprehended a day later in a Davie dialysis center after a massive manhunt, authorities said.

            Police arrested James Wonder, 65, of Miramar, and charged him in connection with the shooting death of Donald J. Pettit, 52, of Pembroke Pines.

            Pettit was gunned down -- shot once in the head -- in the parking lot of a post office at Pines Boulevard and Dykes Road as his 12-year-old daughter watched.

            ''She cries at night,'' Pettit's widow, Ileana, said Wednesday, sobbing. ``She holds me and says she wants her daddy back.''

            Federal sources close to the investigation say the shooting was sparked by a road rage incident that started as Wonder and Pettit were driving on Pines Boulevard.

            For some unknown reason, the two cars pulled into the post office parking lot and ended with Pettit laying in a pool of blood beside his car.

            Wonder lives in Miramar with his wife of 30 years, Aurora.

            Late Wednesday, she declined to speak with a reporter when reached by phone.

            Her husband, who carries a concealed weapons permit, has no prior criminal history, according to public records.

              Fantastic news. Glad they got the scum bag.

              It looked like the agent didn't have a chance, armed or not, as they showed the "bullet" hole in the agent's car, and it looked like the round entered through the rear driver's side window at an angle.

              Probably had no idea...

                Bad situation all the way around. I'm overjoyed that they were able to get that guy. When I was at work last night and the bolo came out onto my laptop that the guy had been caught, that was awesome. It made my night. Hopefully this is the right guy and he pays for what he did. Hopefully this will help the family in some small way.

                    Has to be the right guy... All they got to do is ask the 12yr old daughter that saw her father get gunned down by him. I'm sure she can PID him easily. Plus the person that tipped off the FBI must have known he was the one that did it. Why would some one call the FBI saying "a person of interest is at this clinic for a checkup", they knew it was exactly him. Glad they got him. Sucks seeing the wife speak to the media. I can only imagine what she's going through.
