TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) -The suspect from the fatal shooting on East Golf Links Road on April 22 has been extradited to Pima County.

As of April 28, 37-year-old Antonio Ulysses Collins is being held in the Pima County jail without bond.

According to a news release from the Tucson Police Department, officers responded to shots fired at the Villa Del Sol Apartments, located 6775 E. Golf Links Road, at around 3:20 a.m. Thursday, April 22, 2021. That’s where they found 35-year-old Chad Aaron Hill laying in a hallway with a gunshot wound. Hill was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

Investigators found out Hill had been in a verbal confrontation with Collins — the suspected gunman — right before the shooting, the release stated. Collins fled the scene but later that same day was apprehended by Buckeye police near a Love’s truck stop west of Phoenix.

Buckeye authorities took him into custody without incident on second-degree murder charges and booked him into the Maricopa County jail where he awaits extradition to Pima County.

Tucson homicide detectives are still investigating the case and encourage anyone with information about the shooting to call 88-CRIME. Tips can remain anonymous.
