Man accused of fatal shooting at Tucson bus stop

TUCSON, Ariz. - Authorities say a suspect is in custody in connection with a fatal shooting at a Tucson bus stop.

Tucson police said Wednesday that 21-year-old Eric Jones already was in the Pima County Jail for an unrelated offense.

He's now being held on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Police say 41-year-old Robert Chance was shot Monday afternoon and taken to a Tucson hospital, where he died.

They say Jones was arrested hours later for allegedly driving a stolen car.

Police say a handgun was found on the driver's seat of the car and detectives have determined that it was the weapon used in the homicide.

They say Jones has a lengthy violent criminal history that includes aggravated assault on a police officer. Police didn't immediately know Wednesday whether Jones has a lawyer.
