Amarillo, TX - A local man accused of first degree murder is back in Amarillo after being captured in Minnesota.

Authorities believe 22-year-old Tyrone Black fatally shot 19-year-old Eric Smith at an Amarillo nightclub last November.

While searching for a suspect in an unrelated incident, Bloomington officers found Black at a hotel earlier this month and discovered he was wanted in Texas.

Black was arrested on July 13th and has been awaiting extradition.

On Monday night, Black was transported back to Amarillo and was booked into the Potter County Jail.
