GLENDALE, Ariz. — Police in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale announced an arrest Friday in a fatal shooting that happened in an apartment complex parking lot earlier in the week.
Police say in a news 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 about a mile west of downtown Glendale.
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.
Police located him Wednesday and caught him in a nearby apartment complex after he tried to evade officers.
Garrett was booked into jail on 2nd degree murder, illegal weapons possession and criminal damage charges. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
