A second suspect in a Garland County triple shooting that left one woman dead has been arrested.

Benjamin Pitts, 24, was taken into custody by police Wednesday on a parole violation and is also being charged with capital murder, aggravated residential burglary and two counts of attempted capital murder, Lt. James Martin with the Garland County sheriff’s office said.
