LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say a 36-year-old man sought for several months in a fatal shooting in Las Vegas has been arrested while walking on a street in the California Bay Area.

Officer Jesse Roybal said Friday that Dwayne Lawson was arrested Jan. 4 in Fairfield, California, and was being held at the Fairfield Solano County jail pending transfer in custody to Las Vegas.

It wasn't immediately clear Friday if Lawson had a lawyer.

Records show that Lawson was named in a warrant filed Oct. 2 in Las Vegas Justice Court on a murder with a weapon charge.

He's accused of killing 35-year-old Obi Che Eaddy on Feb. 13 at the door of an apartment southeast of downtown.

Police said the two men may have had a dispute prior to the shooting.
