    An arrest has been made in the fatal shooting of a 27-year-old man at an apartment complex in Arlington Sunday night.

    Arlington police were called to a shooting at the Indian Creek apartments at 2712 Indian Creek Drive at about 9:30 p.m.

    Officers arrived to find a man, identified by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner as 27-year-old Christian Cruz, with apparent gunshot wounds.  Cruz was hospitalized where he later died.

    Arlington police said Monday morning that they identified Reymund Ruiz as a suspect in the murder and that he was taken into custody earlier in the morning without incident.
