OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Omaha police say a suspect in the shooting death of an Omaha man has been arrested in Kansas.

A news release Tuesday from Omaha police says 48-year-old Donald Krisor was arrested Monday in Burlington, Kan., on a warrant charging him with second-degree murder and a weapons charge. Krisor is a suspect in the death last week of 31-year-old Blaise Benscoter.

Police say Krisor is awaiting extradition.

Benscoter was found wounded Thursday in an apartment and died a short time later at a hospital.

Three other men have been arrested in Benscoter’s death, including 37-year-old Omar Martinez, who was arrested Monday in a Council Bluffs, Iowa hotel. Police say 38-year-old Donald Bridgeford was arrested Saturday, and 20-year-old Sean Collins turned himself in to police Saturday night.
