TUCSON, Arizona — Authorities say a suspect is in custody in connection with a homicide in Tucson last month.
Tucson police announced Wednesday that 29-year-old James Rushing III has been booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of second-degree murder.
Police say 34-year-old Hinh Hoang was at an apartment with several other people on Sept. 20 when he became involved in a verbal altercation with Rushing.
Investigators say at some point in the argument, Rushing pulled out a gun and allegedly shot Hoang before fleeing the scene.
Police say Hoang was transported to a hospital, where he later died.
Detectives issued a felony arrest warrant for Rushing, who was located Monday and arrested without incident.
It's unclear if Rushing has a lawyer yet.
