PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) -- A person of interest was taken into custody Tuesday regarding the shooting death of a Pine Bluff man found inside a car, and police announced that another man is wanted for capital murder in the case.

Officers were called to 10th Avenue and Palm Street around 1 a.m. on Tuesday in response to a call about a possible dead body.

When police arrived, they found a man shot to death inside a car. The man has been identified as 30-year-old Derrick Matthews of Pine Bluff.

Thirty-three-year-old Trevion Dickson of Pine Bluff was named as a person of interest in the shooting, and he was taken into custody without incident Wednesday.  According to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, he has been charged with multiple failure to appear counts.
