Fugitive sought in Fort Collins slaying arrested
FORT COLLINS, Colorado ” A man wanted in connection with a fatal shooting in Fort Collins has been arrested in Longmont after three weeks as a fugitive.
Authorities say 20-year-old Jeremiah Bryant was arrested Thursday night by U.S. marshals and Longmont police.
Bryant was originally arrested in February on an accessory charge in the January shooting death of 30-year-old Clinton Hiney. He was released on bail but missed a May 7 hearing after prosecutors said they planned to charge him with murder.
Authorities allege Bryant and Joshua D. Renn of Loveland went into an apartment looking for methamphetamine and money when Hiney was fatally shot. Two other men were wounded but their names haven’t been released.
Renn is being held on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.
