Man wanted in Arizona fatal shooting is arrested in Colorado

May 31, 2019

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Police in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale say a man wanted in connection with a fatal shooting last month has been arrested in Colorado.

They say 52-year-old Karriem Seymour was taken into custody May 16 in Colorado Springs.

He’s been extradited to Phoenix and jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

It was unclear Thursday if Seymour has a lawyer yet.

Glendale police obtained a felony warrant for Seymour’s arrest after the April 9 shooting death of 31-year-old Damon Frye.

Police say Seymour was identified by witnesses and fled the scene before officers arrived.

Investigators determined the men were in the courtyard area of the apartment complex having a barbeque when an argument ensued and Seymour allegedly shot Frye, who died at a hospital.
