SCOTTSDALE -- Police have arrested a suspect in the case of a woman who was found shot to death in front of a Scottsdale home late last month.

Investigators located Brian Black, 25, in San Diego eight days after the murder of Tanya Paige. The San Diego Police Department and FBI helped take him into custody.

Police believe Paige, 18, was involved in prostitution and had been abducted the night before she was murdered. Evidence had led investigators to believe that Paige was shot while trying to flee the suspect's vehicle.
