TUCSON, May 20 (UPI) -- A man featured on the national TV program "America's Most Wanted" was arrested in Arizona for a 2007 Tucson murder, officials said.

Jurel Roberson, 24, was apprehended after detectives received information from a viewer of the TV show, The Arizona Republic reported Wednesday.

Jurel was charged Wednesday on suspicion of first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and drive-by shooting.

Roberson allegedly fired numerous rounds into a vehicle in which three men were riding Nov. 3, 2007, killing Robert Glenn, 25, of Fort Huachuca. A 20-year-old man was injured but survived and a third passenger was not harmed, the Republic reported.

Police said Roberson early in the investigation was identified as a suspect, but he fled the area.
