PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- A suspect accused of killing a man after he borrowed his cell phone and took off running last month in Phoenix was arrested in Gilbert Thursday.
Police say 18-year-old Keesean Jones is being charged with the murder of 34-year-old Eric Hernandez.
They say Jones approached Hernandez in a Phoenix McDonald's parking lot on Feb. 13, asking to borrow his cell phone.
After Hernandez handed him the phone, Jones took off running. Police say Hernandez then tried to chase Jones before Jones turned and shot him as Hernandez ran away.
Hernandez died of his injuries at a hospital and Jones fled the scene.
Jones was identified as the shooter in the case by police last week.
Police say after his arrest, Jones admitted involvement in the shooting.
He was booked into Maricopa County Jail and is being charged with second-degree murder and theft.
It is unclear if Jones has a lawyer at this time.
