A standoff with a murder suspect ended peacefully in Arizona this week, and now the accused is in cuffs, according to a report.
Around 1 a.m., on April 8, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office responded to a reported shooting in Kingman, Arizona. Multiple people reported hearing gunshots in the area, according to the sheriff’s office.
One person said they heard a man and a woman screaming that someone was shot, according to the sheriff’s office.
Deputies arrived and found a parked car with a dead man in the driver’s seat, according to the sheriff’s office. The victim was identified as Kevin Lee Dennis, 48.
Police identified Adam Marcus Fields, 31, as a suspect. This week, deputies were checking homes and found him in a home. Detectives called for him to leave the home, but Fields remained inside, according to the sheriff’s office.
SWAT was called to the scene and after four hours of negations, Fields surrendered.
Investigators have not released a motive in the killing or say how they identified Fields as a suspect.
He now faces a second-degree murder charge.
