SELMA, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a man sought in the shooting death of a Kentucky father of three has been captured in Alabama after he tried to hide from deputies under a pile of clothes.

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson tells news outlets that Bobby Walker Jr. was arrested Wednesday by sheriff’s deputies who were responding to a domestic violence call.

Dallas County Sheriff’s Office Captain Mike Granthum tells WSFA-TV (https://bit.ly/1VlKzAP ) that deputies chased Jackson through the woods and found him inside a home’s closet, underneath some clothes.

Court documents show that Walker and another man, Kevin Bower, were indicted in connection with a March 15 shooting in Louisville that left 19-year-old La’Mont’e Harris dead and another man injured.

Walker is awaiting extradition to Kentucky. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.
