COSTILLA COUNTY, Colo. — A Greeley man has been arrested in connection with a deadly shooting in southern Colorado. 

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said in a release that a warrant was issued for 25-year-old Rondell Brown, who was arrested at his home Friday evening. 

He was taken to the Weld County Jail, where he is being held on $150,000 bond and faces a charge of second-degree murder and three counts of felony menacing, according to CBI.

CBI said Jesus Lozano, 51, was shot at a home in a rural area near the 900 block of Wilking Way in Costilla County on Saturday, Aug. 13. He later died at a hospital in Alamosa. 

Investigators said their preliminary information is that Brown was an acquaintance of Lozano's family and that there may have been a disturbance at the home leading up to the shooting.
