U.S. Marshals, on Friday, arrested a suspect in a July shooting that left one Tucson man dead.

Angel Efrain Cruz, 19, was arrested by authorities in Mexico in the town of Rayon, Sonora Mexico. Mexican authorities turned him over to U.S. Marshals Saturday at the Nogales port of entry.

Cruz was located as a result of a joint investigation of the Marshals Service and the Tucson Police Department, Deputy U.S. Marshal Daniel Leyva, said in a news release.

Cruz is suspected in the July 29 shooting death of 32-year-old John Drumm. Police found Drumm in an alley in the 3900 block of South Sixth Avenue near East Ajo Way, with a gunshot wound to the neck. He died at the hospital. Witnesses said Drumm, and another man, were targeted by a gunman in a passing vehicle. The second man escaped uninjured.

Cruz is facing charges of first-degree murder in a drive-by shooting and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
