A man wanted in connection with a murder in Chattanooga Thursday morning was arrested in Cleveland early today.

According to reports, Andrew Graves was taken into custody by the Chattanooga Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit at an apartment complex on Elrod and Lay streets. The Bradley County Sheriff’s Office assisted with Grave’s arrest.

Graves is reportedly a suspect in the murder of Michael Newby, 23, who was shot in his home in Chattanooga at 1236 North Concord Road. The shooting occurred around 4 a.m. When Chattanooga police arrived on the scene, they reportedly found Newby lying face down in the front doorway of his home.

A Chattanooga police spokesperson said there were other people in the home at the time of the shooting.

Investigators have not released a motive in the murder.

Newby is being charged with first-degree murder. He is being held at the Hamilton County jail on a $200,000 bond. At press time today, a court date had yet to be set for the suspect.
