COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) --Police have arrested a man in connection with the shooting death of his 8-year-old nephew on Columbus's East Side.

ABC6 reports Robert Broom was taken into custody Thursday morning in the 400 block of Southwood Avenue, weeks after Jamarion Cox was shot in the head while riding in a car on Roswell Drive.

Investigators believe Broom was also riding in that car on April 9, and fired at least one gunshot before getting out then vanishing for weeks.
