PONTIAC, Mich. (WXYZ) — Oakland County deputies say a suspect they were looking for in connection to a fatal shooting in Pontiac Monday night has been arrested.

Authorities identified the suspect as 18-year-old Stanford Clirteese Sharp Jr. of Pontiac. They had been looking for Sharp. Deputies said Wednesday night that he's been arrested.

The shooting happened at the Phoenix Place Apartments. Deputies identified the victim as Antonio Lee Mayes, 32, of Pontiac.

Maye’s body was found in his mother’s bedroom, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said.

They say his sister called deputies Tuesday around 12:41 p.m. and said her daughter’s boyfriend shot the victim. She then called her and Maye’s mother to report his death. That’s when the mother found the body inside her apartment.

Deputies say the mother was away from her apartment at the time of the shooting. She also told deputies that her son had been shot Monday night by the suspect.

The victim was shot several times in his torso, investigators said.

They said spent shell casings were found outside the bedroom on the floor.
