ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP/WCCO) — Police arrested a man Saturday in St. Paul in connection to the slaying of another man in North Dakota.

Delvin Shaw, 29, was taken into custody at a residence after police received a tip Saturday morning, St. Paul police spokesman Paul Paulos said. Shaw was arrested on warrants for murder and burglary, according to a news release from police in Grand Forks, North Dakota, who are working on the case with St. Paul police and the U.S. Marshals Service.

“I’m glad to say we locked up a real bad guy today,” Paulos told The Associated Press on Saturday.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Shaw has been officially charged or when he will appear in court. He was taken to the county jail in Ramsey County, Minnesota, and being held until further notice.

Police believe Shaw and Dametrian Welch are responsible for the death of 24-year-old Jose Lopez, who died early Tuesday in his Grand Forks home after suffering three gunshot wounds.

Welch made his initial court appearance Friday on charges of murder and conspiracy to commit burglary. WDAZ-TV in Grand Forks reported that his bond was set at $500,000.

On Saturday, police went to the residence in St. Paul in search of Welch’s alleged accomplice. Paulos told the AP the suspect stayed inside for nearly an hour before surrendering without incident. Police using a bullhorn had ordered him to come out.

St. Paul’s SWAT team was called in as well because of the “dangerous nature” of Shaw’s alleged crime, Paulos said.
