PHOENIX (AP) - A suspect has been arrested in an armed robbery and fatal shooting last April in Phoenix, police said.

They said 18-year-old Kennon Grover was taken into custody Tuesday on suspicion of first-degree murder and armed robbery and his bond has been set at $1 million.

It was unclear Wednesday if Grover has a lawyer yet for his case.

Police said the victim was 59-year-old Delfino Picazo, who was a medical transport driver.

Grover allegedly approached Picazo outside a Phoenix apartment complex while he was waiting to pick up a passenger.



A witness told police that Grover demanded money from Picazo at gunpoint and then fatally shot him.

Court records show Grover told police that he went to the Hopi Reservation after the shooting and stayed there until he felt it was safe to return to Phoenix.
