January 25, 2020 GMT

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Reno police have arrested a 34-year-old suspect in the fatal shooting of a man who was found dead in his vehicle following a crash a few blocks from the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center.

Daniel Munoz of Reno was being held Friday without bail in the Washoe County Jail on an open murder charge in the Jan. 14 death of 48-year-old Edward Long of Reno.

Police say they found Long dead in the vehicle shortly before 6 p.m. but quickly determined he had not died from injuries related to the crash on Sutro Street northeast of the events center in northeast Reno. They say the shooting had occurred nearby minutes earlier.

It’s not clear if Munoz has a lawyer or will be appointed one at a pending court appearance.

Anyone with information is urged to call robbery-homicide detectives at the Reno Police Department at 775-334-2115 or Secret Witness at 775-322-4900.
