A man suspected of shooting another man in Riviera Beach in a domestic dispute has been arrested in Demott, Arkansas, according to Riviera Beach police.

U.S. Marshal’s Task Force agents arrested 58-year-old Johnny Davis, Jr., on charges of attempted first degree murder and felon in possession of a firearm, police said.

The shooting happened the day after Christmas last year at 1117 West 33rd Street.
