A man wanted in connection with the murder of a Colorado musician has been arrested 670 miles away in Arizona.

Michael House was shot and killed in the parking lot of a Super 8 at 58th Avenue at Broadway on May 4.

House was a local musician who went by the name Syklone, according to our partners at the Denver Post.

Witnesses told Denver7 they heard at least six gunshots.

One suspect, Jose Ocampo, was taken into custody the next day at a Motel 6 in Lakewood.

A second man, Kenneth Ray Bastidos, was arrested Tuesday in Arizona.

Police said officers chased Bastidos on May 15 after a woman ran into a Flagstaff hotel and reported she had been traveling with Bastidos. However, he got away that day.

When narcotic agents spotted a man matching Bastidos description Tuesday, that led to his arrest, authorities said.

He was booked into the Coconino County jail on a homicide warrant.
