GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Police in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale say they've made an arrest in a fatal shooting that happened in an apartment complex parking lot earlier in the week.

Police say in a Friday new release that officers were alerted to the Monday night shooting by a device known as “ShotSpotter” which sends an alert when gunshots are detected. They found 31-year-old Coylee Willis with gunshot wounds and he was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators learned Willis was confronted by a man and an altercation led to the shooting.

They later identified 26-year-old Jaytavyonne “Jay Loco” Garrett as the suspect and he was arrested Wednesday on murder and other charges.
