PHOENIX (AP) - A suspect has been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting last week in Phoenix, police said Monday.

They said 27-year-old Jonathan Jesse Juarez has been booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder.

It was unclear Monday if Juarez has a lawyer yet.

Police said officers responded to a fight call Saturday night and they found a man with a gunshot wound inside a residence.

Phoenix Fire Department personnel arrived and pronounced the victim dead at the scene.



He was identified as 39-year-old William Jerry Anaya.

Detectives learned through the investigation that Anaya was involved in a verbal argument with two other men prior to the shooting.

Police didn’t immediately say how Juarez was linked to the case.
