TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Police arrested a Tucson man in connection to a fatal shooting in midtown Monday.

Dwarka Baron, 44, was arrested by officers with the Tucson Police Department for the killing of 35-year-old Charles Viney, who was found shot to death at a home on the 3500 block of east Water Street on Monday night.

Baron is being held at the Pima County Adult Detention Complex on first-degree murder charges.

Officers were dispatched late March 23, 2020, to a home on Water Street where they found Viney with clear gunshot wounds. They attempted life-saving measures but Viney was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a news release from TPD.
