Authorities say they have arrested an Arkansas teen accused of fatally shooting a 24-year-old man Friday night.

The Searcy Police Department said officers arrested Justice Cunningham, 19, on a capital murder charge around 2 a.m. Tuesday.

The arrest ended a search that began Friday evening when Searcy officers found a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the 800 block of West Park Avenue.

Davion Bankhead, 24, was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead an hour later.

Cunningham, who is from Searcy, is now being held at White County jail. His bail will be set at a hearing Wednesday.
