JACKSON, Tennessee — A Tennessee man has been arrested in Indiana on a warrant related to a shooting death in July.

U.S. Marshal Jeff Love told The Jackson Sun ( ) that officers caught up with 23-year-old Dontavious Hendrix in Indianapolis on Friday, where he was arrested without incident.

Police in Jackson were seeking Hendrix for the July 27 shooting death of 20-year-old Justin Williams.

A second man, 21-year-old Mondarrius Miller, was arrested days after the shooting.

Hendrix was being held in the Marion County Jail awaiting extradition to Tennessee. Jail records did not list an attorney for him.
