Metro Nashville Police say they have found a man suspected in a fatal shooting who had escaped from police custody.

Police say Brian T. Williams was arrested Wednesday morning, about eight hours after escaping from an officer as he was being let out of a police car at a precinct facility. The statement says Williams took off, still wearing handcuffs, around 1 a.m. while wearing a red T-shirt, camo pajama pants, black socks and no shoes.

Police said he was wanted in Monday night's slaying of 34-year-old Henry Arthur Wilson III.
