NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The New Orleans Police Department has arrested a suspect in connection with the murder of a Black Lives Matter advocate from Charleston, SC.

Muhiyidin Moye was found shot in the 1900 block of Bienville Street in February.

Moye's mountain bike was found covered in blood on the opposite side of the street in the 2200 block of Bienville St.

On Tuesday officers arrested Roosevelt Iglus in the 700 block of Iberville Street without incident, according to NOPD.

Iglus was booked into the Orleans Parish Justice Center for second degree murder.

Anyone with additional information on this incident is asked to contact NOPD Homicide Detective Brett Mathes at 504-658-5300.

The incident was caught on camera during a live report.
