MILTON-FREEWATER, Ore. (AP) — A man sought in the shooting death of his neighbor in Milton-Freewater has been arrested in Walla Walla, Wash.

Walla Walla County Sheriff John Turner says a deputy spotted a pickup truck carrying 49-year-old George West Craigen on Sunday and, once more officers arrived, pulled it over.

Both Craigen and the driver, Jason Stiller of Milton-Freewater, were taken to jail. There is no word yet on when they will be in court.

Authorities say 60 people were involved in the search for Craigen after the Friday morning shooting of Cecil “Rob” Carter, who was hit several times.
