(Crittenden County, AR) An accused killer who had been on the run since May was captured in Crittenden County.

A Crime Stoppers tip led officers to Eddie Tribble who was hiding out in The Greens Apartments in Marion, AR.

He was arrested Tuesday evening and remains in the Crittenden County Detention Center in lieu of $3 million bail.

Tribble faces first degree murder charges for the May 6th shooting of Devario Smith outside The Good Lyfe, a West Memphis nightclub.

Officers surrounded his mother’s home two weeks after the shooting on a tip that Tribble was hiding out there. After a standoff that lasted several hours, police raided the home to discover that Tribble was already gone.

Eddie Tribble was later added to the West Memphis Police Most Wanted list.
