A Hunt County man has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with a shooting death in Arlington in April.

The Arlington Police Department announced this morning that it has made an arrest in the murder of a security guard at a business on April 14. Simon Alejandro Flores Acevedo was taken into custody in coordination with the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals North Texas Fugitive Taskforce.

Acevedo remained in custody Thursday morning at the jail, being held in lieu of $250,000 bond on a charge of murder, pending transfer to Tarrant County.

The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

The deceased was an employee at the business.
