Suspect In Texas Homicide Case Arrested In Southern Arizona

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A man wanted in connection with a homicide case in Texas has been arrested in southern Arizona, authorities said Thursday.

Oro Valley police said 34-year-old Nicholas Darimont was taken into custody Monday outside a shopping center north of Tucson.

Police said the department had received word that Darimont was on his way to the area from San Antonio, where a warrant had been issued for his arrest.

San Antonio police said Darimont was the third suspect arrested in connection with a fatal shooting at a motel on St. Patrick’s Day.

Oro Valley police said Darimont was booked into the Pima County Jail as a fugitive from justice and awaits extradition to Bexar County, Texas.

It was unclear Thursday night if Darimont has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.
