DENVER (AP) - Authorities have arrested a parolee in connection with a fatal shooting and fire at a building that houses a popular bagel shop in Denver.

The Denver Post reported Thursday (https://goo.gl/BtMmfs ) that 30-year-old Brian Scott Pattison was arrested on suspicion of murder and arson, as well as multiple weapons charges.

Investigators say 29-year-old Shane Richardson was found dead in an apartment closet on the second floor of the building that houses Rosenberg’s Bagels and Delicatessen. Firefighters were called to the building early May 2, and investigators believe the fire started on the second floor. Rosenberg’s operates out of the building’s first floor below the apartment.

Pattison is being held in the Las Animas County jail. A man who answered the phone at the jail said he couldn’t release any information about Pattison, including whether booking documents list an attorney.
