Miami-Dade police arrested Carlints St. Louis on Tuesday. Authorities say he committed a July shooting that wounded a 68-year-old man as he was walking to a Miami synagogue.
A man in Miami seemed to be trying to clear his name this week when he presented himself to police as someone who had his gun stolen recently, but the event took a surprising turn when police realized he was the man they suspected in a high-profile shooting over the summer.
Miami-Dade police Det. Lee Cowart told NPR that when Carlints St. Louis walked into a Florida police station saying his gun had gone missing it was "the icing on the cake" after authorities had been homing in on him in recent weeks.
According to an arrest affidavit filed by the Miami-Dade Police Department, St. Louis, 30, was arrested a day after he filed his report with the Hallandale Beach Police Department.
