A Colorado man with a head tattoo has been taken into custody after police said he was a person of interest in a deadly shooting.
Mark Peters, 46, was wanted in Friday’s killing of a woman he knew, at a home in Colorado Springs, the Colorado Springs Gazette reported.
Colorado police had appealed to the public for information on Peters’ whereabouts, saying he may have been riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
The newspaper reported that Peters was apprehended around midnight Friday on suspicion of stalking and violation of protection orders. He wasn’t charged in connection with the homicide.
A man who said he was the woman’s father told the paper his daughter was killed as the result of domestic violence, according to FOX News.
“The mother, daughter and son made multiple calls to the police about someone sitting on a motorcycle near the house,” the man said, according to the paper. “They (the police) didn’t do their job.”
The newspaper reported seeking reaction from a police spokesman who declined comment, citing the active investigation.
