A man wanted in the fatal shooting of his roommate in Sunrise last month has been taken into custody, police said Friday.

A warrant on a second-degree murder charge had been issued for 31-year-old Jeavoye A. Jones after the killing of Mark McNab, Sunrise Police said.

Records showed Jones was arrested by police in Plantation, but no other details of the arrest were known.

Police said Jones and McNab had been roommates for years before the April 22 shooting.

At a news conference Thursday, police said they didn't know why McNab was killed.

"We don't know if there was an argument beforehand, again, we still have no motive," Det. Roberto Milien said. "There had been some tension in the past."

Jones was booked into the Broward jail Friday morning, where he was being held without bond. Attorney information wasn't available.

"This is a tragic and senseless murder," Sunrise Police Chief Anthony Rosa said.
