A man sought in connection to the killing of another man in St. Paul has been arrested by the FBI in Chicago. 

According to St. Paul Police Department, the 33-year-old alleged gunman was detained in Chicago Nov. 19 and is currently awaiting extradition back to Minnesota. Bring Me The News does not typically name suspects until formal charges are filed. 

The man in custody is accused of fatally shooting Leroy Spivey, 34, of Minneapolis on Nov. 14 near the intersection of Rice Street and Sherburne Avenue. 

“Seeking justice for victims requires a team effort," said St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell. "And between our Homicide Unit, Special Investigations, Forensic Services, all the officers who worked the case and our federal partners, Saint Paul has a great team working on its behalf.”

There have been 30 homicides in St. Paul this year, with 28 cases cleared via arrests or charges, the department announced Monday.
