A man wanted in connection to a killing in Virginia was arrested Tuesday morning in Nashville.

Jennings was spotted walking along Trinity Lane near Interstate 65.

Officers stopped and questioned him, and say he had marijuana on him.

Jennings was arrested without incident.

Police say Jennings is accused in the shooting death of a 26-year-old man that happened over the weekend in Suffolk, VA.
