Arizona murder suspect arrested in Northern Iowa
CHARLES CITY, Iowa (KCRG) - Earlier this year, US Marshals developed information that a suspect involved in a homicide in Tucson, Arizona, was in Charles City.
On April 28th, 2022, Tuscon Police responded to several 911 reports of a shooting near N. Park Ave and E. 2nd Street. Responding officers found an adult male with gunshots and immediately rendered aid. A second gunshot victim was also located nearby with serious injuries.
The first victim was ultimately pronounced deceased at the scene. The second victim was transported to a local hospital in life-threatening condition. That victim has since stabilized.
Investigators identified Trevontea Howard-Brown as the suspect and issued a warrant for his arrest in May of 2022.
Then, on January 20th, 2023, members from the US Marshals Service and Charles City Police located and identified Howard-Brown at a residence in Charles City. Howard-Brown briefly barricaded himself inside the residence before ultimately being taken into custody without incident.
Howard-Brown was charged with 1st Degree Murder and Attempted 1st Degree Murder.
He is currently awaiting extradition back to Arizona.
