TEMPE, AZ — Tempe police have made an arrest after a deadly shooting last summer.

Detectives located 28-year-old Enrique Gerardo Munoz on Feb. 2, 2020, who was wanted in connection with a homicide that occurred on July 29, 2019.

Surveillance video, cell phone data, interviews and forensics led officials to Munoz, who admitted to shooting 35-year-old Edwin Rozo during a physical altercation.

Police say Munoz reportedly fled the scene after the shooting and tried to sell the handgun connected with the deadly shooting.

He was booked into a Tempe jail and then moved to Maricopa County's 4th Avenue Jail where he was booked on charges of misconduct involving weapons and second-degree murder.
