Police say they've arrested an 18-year-old wanted in the December murder of an older man.

Rocky Mount Police had been looking for Dewayne Avent since December 27. They found him hiding in an attic at a home on Ketchpoint Drive Friday.

They say he shot 27-year old Tronyale Daniel during an altercation in the 1200 block of Parham Street a few days after Christmas.

Daniel died at the hospital several hours later.

Avent is charged with first-degree murder. He was held in the Nash County Jail without bond.
