A suspect in connection with a deadly shooting in July in suburban West Palm Beach has been arrested.

Curtis Jenkins, 27, faces a first-degree murder charge, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

On July 23, deputies received a call of a disturbance in the 4600 block of Myla Lane.

Before they got there a 911 call came in from a nearby Subway restaurant concerning the appearance of a shooting victim.

Investigators found John Lee Roland, 49, and he was taken to a hospital where he died during surgery.

The sheriff's office said their investigation led to the arrest of Jenkins.

He's being held without bond.
