An Arizona murder suspect is being held in a Floyd County jail after his arrest following a brief standoff in Charles City. Police in Tucson, Arizona issued a warrant last year for
24-year-old Trevontea Tyron Howard-Brown, a suspect in a fatal shooting near the University of Arizona campus. A 23-year-old man was killed, and another man critically injured in the shooting on April 22nd.
According to a news release from Tucson Police, the US Marshals Service tracked the suspect to a home in Charles City and Howard-Brown briefly barricaded himself inside the house Friday morning before being taken into custody.
Howard-Brown is being held as a fugitive in the Floyd County Jail and will be transferred to Tucson to face charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder. His bond has been set at one million dollars.
