A man wanted in connection with a Jan. 12 shooting that took place in Texas was arrested Friday in Chicago.

Jaqwa Cheguevera Ross, 18, is accused of shooting of Shelton Thacker, also 18, outside a Super 8 Motel near a pool in the 900 block of North Central Expressway in McKinney, Texas, according to a release from the McKinney Police Department.
