A murder suspect in Washington was arrested in Eagan on Tuesday. 

Eagan Police Department says it executed a high risk warrant in the 1400 block of Shoreline Drive after receiving a tip from the King County Sheriff's Office in Washington state that homicide suspect could be staying in a residence there. 

The suspect, identified as William Oliver Holly, 25, of St. Paul, was found by Eagan PD at 1:23 p.m. and taken into custody without incident. No one else was inside the home.

Holly was booked into Dakota County Jail for a felony domestic assault warrant out of Ramsey County, in addition to the Washington homicide warrant. 

According to charging documents filed in King County, via the Star Tribune, Holly is suspected of firing 11 shots from a semiautomatic handgun into a crowd of people in a parking at a high school in Des Moines – a suburb of the south side of Seattle. 

One of the bullets struck and killed Leuea Loto, 21, of Mount Rainier, Washington. 

The shots were fired following an annual Thanksgiving Day pickup football game, during which a fight broke out after one of the players spit in another player's face, according to the charging documents.
