DETROIT (AP) — Wayne County authorities have arrested a man in connection to a deadly shooting after locating him with a police tracker he wasn't required to wear.

The Detroit News reports ( ) Sheriff Benny Napoleon said Wednesday that a 20-year-old was arrested after the Tuesday shooting. Police say he was a passenger in a car on Detroit's northwest side when he shot the driver in the head. He escaped after the car hit a tree.

Police say the suspect was wearing a tracking tether at the time even though he had been released from tether monitoring and placed on probation for an undisclosed crime. They used the tracker to find him and confirm he was in the area of the shooting when it occurred.

It's unclear if he has an attorney or if he's been charged.
