The U.S. Marshals said a tip led them to the Harvard Square area, where his vehicle was located.
Marshals put the vehicle under surveillance, and Panjrolia was spotted and captured at around 12:30 p.m.
The shooting happened around 9:30 p.m. Saturday in the 1900 block of Conwell Avenue in Philadelphia's Bustleton section.
Officials say Panjrolia loaded a rifle inside a bathroom in his parents' home. While in the bathroom he accidentally discharged the rifle once, police say.
The suspect then allegedly walked out of the bathroom and into the living room where his mother and father were watching TV, and fired shots at his father.
Panjrolia's mother fled from the home screaming.
Police arrived at the scene and found 60-year-old Mahendra B. Panjrolia in the living room area suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.
