CINCINNATI — Police arrested a man Saturday in connection with an August shooting that left another man dead.

Cincinnati Police and the Ohio State Highway Patrol arrested Michael Jordan, 30, on an open murder warrant for the death of 28-year-old Kacey Jones, according to a news release.

Police previously identified Jones as the victim in a fatal shooting in Roselawn on Aug. 27. Officers found him shot to death in the 2000 block of Seymour Avenue, according to a police release. No other information about Jones was released.
