The suspect in a fatal shooting in Roscommon County has been captured in Metro Detroit.
Francisco Arroyo allegedly shot two people in Roscommon County’s Nester Township on Wednesday afternoon. One of the victims died of a gunshot wound to the head, while the other is reportedly in stable condition.

Police say he was hiding in a relative’s house. His vehicle was found unoccupied nearby.
Arroyo was taken into custody without incident, and is being held on multiple charges including open murder.
He is currently being held in the Roscommon County Jail.
