TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The suspect in a fatal shooting in Tucson last week has been arrested, city police said.

Sgt. Pete Dugan, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said Nathan Mayo was arrested without incident on the east side of town Wednesday, May 17.

The 27-year-old Mayo was wanted for aggravated assault, but more charges are pending after the shooting victim died.

The TPD said a 17-year-old was shot following an argument in a parking lot near the intersection of Grant and Oracle roads on May 8, 2017.

The victim was transported to a local hospital but died on Saturday, May 13.

"They were able to determine a female was dropped off at the restaurant by Mayo to meet with her boyfriend and his family," the TPD said in a news release. "While in the parking lot, an argument ensued between Mayo, the boyfriend and his brother (the teen victim). During the course of the argument, (Mayo) pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the boyfriend before shooting (the teen)."
