TUCSON - A 21-year-old man has been charged with one count of 1st degree murder.
Tucson police say Eric Jones shot 41-year-old Robert Chance at a bus stop at Broadway Boulevard and Alvernon Way Monday.
He ran away after the shooting.
An-off duty officer later saw him driving more than 100 miles per hour.
Jones' vehicle passed a Department of Public Safety Officer, and the DPS Officer stopped him.
The vehicle Jones was driving turned out to be stolen.
Officers also found a handgun on the driver's seat of the vehicle.
The officers were unaware that Jones was the suspect in the earlier homicide.
Through their own investigation, Tucson Police Homicide Detectives identified Jones as the suspect in the homicide Monday.
Detectives also determined the handgun DPS recovered from Jones was the weapon used in the homicide.
