Renton police arrested a 20-year-old man in Bellevue Friday night in connection with a Nov. 30 shooting that left a 21-year-old man dead.

Jason Hobbs, Jr. was killed in the parking lot of a Renton apartment complex in the 900 block of Aberdeen Avenue Northeast.

Cops were called to a shooting report about 6:33 p.m. They found Hobbs suffering from gunshot wounds and medics attempted to revive him, but he died at the scene.

In the wake of Hobbs' death, Renton police reported at least two men were involved in the shooting.

Investigators identified one suspect and tracked him to Bellevue, where he was detained and arrested at a hospital parking lot, reports indicate. Cops booked him into King County Jail for investigation of homicide, where he remains held on $1 million bail.

Detectives say additional suspects may be identified as they continue to work the case.
