    A 24-year-old man has been arrested in connection to a fatal shooting in Uptown Dallas that happened back in May.

    Deric Madison, 24, is currently in Dallas County Jail on a capital murder charge for the May 30 shooting death of 33-year-old Joshua Tubbleville.

    Tubbleville was shot in his Mercedes just before he crashed his vehicle into a Shell station near Oak Lawn and Lemmon avenues. He later died at the hospital from his injuries.

    Investigators said Tubbleville and Madison met at a bar shortly before the shooting.

    "They met the evening before, and from information we received from other witnesses is that they had a drink together inside Mr. Tubblefield's condo, and then he was giving him a ride home the next morning," said Lt. Barbara Hobbs with the Dallas Police Department.

    Hobbs said on the ride back is when Madison tried to rob Tubbleville. She said during that attempt Tubbleville was shot and killed.

    Investigators said they do not believe the men knew each other before the shooting.

    DNA evidence in Tubbleville’s car and condo led to the arrest.

    Madison was booked into jail shortly after 2 a.m. on Tuesday.

    His bond has been set at $500,000.
