Detroit, MI - Investigators from the United States Marshals Service, Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team known as DFAT, have arrested a suspect wanted in the murder of a 21-year-old female found shot to death in a room at the Corktown Inn on Detroit's West side in the early morning hours of April 19.

The victim, Ninoshka Nueves-Figuera, was found with multiple gunshot wounds to her body. It is alleged that the suspect may have been targeting women online and would later rob.

Anyone with information on any other women who may have been targeted are urged to call the Detroit Police.
