NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Authorities arrested a man Thursday in Chattanooga in connection to shooting another outside a Nashville gas station nearly a year ago.

Police said Melvin Evans was the primary suspect related to the deadly shooting of Jashaun Cane-Germane last May. Evans, 51, is accused of killing Cane-Germane, 24, outside a market at the intersection of Fairfield Avenue and Lafayette Street. Investigators said the men engaged in an argument inside the store before the shooting.

The U.S. Marshal’s Smoky Mountain Fugitive Task Force today arrested Evans after following a Crime Stoppers tip, which led to him being found in a Chattanooga home.

Authorities said they will transport him back to Nashville.
