TASLEY, Va.- A suspect has been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred last weekend near Tasley in Accomack County, police announced Wednesday.

Accomack County Sheriff Todd Godwin said that on Tuesday, law enforcement officers from the U.S. Marshal's Service and the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office located 24-year-old Jamar Edjuan Hickman of Tasley in Salisbury, Md., and took him into custody.

Hickman was sought on arrest warrants for an early Sunday morning shooting that occurred at a home on Daugherty Road near Tasley. Godwin said that when deputies from his office arrived on the scene, a male victim was located and found to be suffering from gunshot wounds. He was transported to Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

The victim has been identified as 32-year old James Marque Wyatt of Tasley.

Godwin said the investigation into this incident revealed that a dispute occurred between several individuals at this same address during which time gunshots were fired, resulting in Wyatt's death.

Following Tuesday's arrest, Hickman was ordered held in the Wicomico County Detention Center pending extradition to Virginia where he faces charges of first-degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a murder.
