One Dead in Arlington Shooting, Man Arrested After Standoff

A man sought in connection with a deadly shooting that stemmed from an altercation at an Arlington convenience store Thursday evening was arrested overnight after a police standoff at his home, officers say.

According to police, Justin Milen, 38, was held in the Arlington Jail Friday morning on a charge of murder.

He was identified as a suspect after a man was found with a gunshot wound shortly before 6:30 p.m. in the 1700 block of West Sanford Street. The man, who hasn't been named, was taken to a hospital where he died.

According to police, the shooting stemmed from an altercation between Milen and the man at a convenience store in the 1600 block of West Randol Mill Road.

Investigators believe Milen followed the man after leaving the store and shot him as he walked down the street, police said.

A witness gave officers a license plate number of the gunman's vehicle, which led officers to Milen's home in the 1900 block of Nueces Trail. SWAT officers surrounded the house after Milen initially refused to come out.
