A suspect has been arrested in connection to the shooting on Highway 169 in Plymouth that killed youth baseball coach Jay Boughton.
Plymouth police on Thursday said a suspect has been arrested and there will be a news conference at 2 p.m. No other details were provided.
The arrest comes after nearly two months of searching for the suspect who fatally shot the 56-year-old Boughton while he was driving home from a baseball game with his son. The shooting happened around 10 p.m. on July 6 on Highway 169 south of Rockford Road.
Police said another motorist traveling in the same direction opened fire while alongside Boughton's vehicle. Boughton suffered a gunshot wound to the head, lost control of the vehicle and crashed in a parking lot. He later died at a hospital.
Authorities say a "traffic altercation" may have preceded the shooting — something "very minor" like a lane change, Plymouth Police Chief Erik Fadden said in the days after the shooting.
"This wasn't a back and forth, and it escalated quickly, and we don't know why right now," he said.
The suspect's vehicle was recovered on July 23.
The Armstrong Cooper Youth Baseball Association community set up a GoFundMe page to support the Boughtons. The page has brought in more than $85,000 so far.
