FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A man wanted in connection with a slaying in Fayetteville has been arrested in Lumberton.

Fayetteville Police say that 33-year-old Abu-Bakr Abdur Rahman was arrested about 2 a.m. on Saturday. He was wanted for first-degree murder and possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine.

Authorities say the charges stem from the Sept. 20 shooting death of 36-year-old Desmond Deron Smith. Police say Smith was shot during a drug deal.

Rahman is being held without bond. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
