Authorities in Dallas have apprehended a suspect in relation to the fatal shooting of a man in Uptown Dallas last week.

Police haven’t released any details about a possible motive.

The shooting happened outside of a Wells Fargo bank branch, close to 5 p.m., on Tuesday, Dec. 20. Video recordings from the scene show the suspect approaching Butler and shooting him the face with a rifle.

Arrest documents show that a woman had accused Thompson of attempting to rob her and her friend on Dec. 16. She stated that the suspect had the same surgical mask, hooded sweatshirt, and blue jacket as the man seen in the Uptown shooting recording.

That man left the location in a white Lincoln.
