PHOENIX - Monday morning just after 5 a.m., Hezron Parks appeared in front of a judge. He is charged with second degree murder in connection with the shooting death of an off-duty Tempe Fire captain.

The 21-year-old suspect turned himself in after an intense manhunt.

Capt. Kyle Brayer was in Old Town Scottsdale on the back of a golf cart on Sunday at 2:30 a.m. when a vehicle was being aggressive behind the cart. Brayer approached the vehicle and that’s when he was shot in the head by the driver. He was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The suspect fled the scene, but later turned himself in. Parks said nothing about the incident this morning to the judge other than his name.

Parks was given a $300,000 cash-only bond, a requested amount by the state due to Parks alleged ties outside the country. If he makes bond he will be on pretrial supervision under electronic monitoring.

Tempe Fire Chief Greg Ruiz and Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell are scheduled to speak about Capt. Brayer Monday morning.

A preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 14 for Parks.
