PHOENIX (AP) — Police in Phoenix say a suspect is in custody in connection with a fatal shooting last weekend.

They say 33-year-old Robert Crow has been booked into jail on suspicion of murder.

Police say officers responded to reports of a shooting early in front of a Phoenix home last Saturday morning.

They found a man with a shotgun wound and he was transported to a hospital in critical condition.

The man died at the hospital and police identified him as 39-year-old Christopher Salles.

Police say detectives developed probable cause to arrest Crow, who allegedly admitted to shooting Salles while they were working.

A possible motive for the fatal shooting hasn't been released by police yet.

It was unclear Monday if Crow has a lawyer yet.
