TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Tyler Police have identified the victim in a fatal shooting.

At 9:09 a.m. Tuesday, Tyler Police Department officers and Tyler firefighters were called to the Royal Inn and Suites in the 2600 block of Loop 323 in Tyler. The FBI and the U.S. Marshals Office also responded to the scene.

When officers arrived, they learned that a man, identified as Tommy Gleen Wilson, 49, had been shot. Wilson was transported to a hospital, where he later died. 

Police say the shooting stemmed from an argument between Jared Eugene Wilson, 30, of Houston and Tommy Wilson over car keys that belonged to the girlfriend of Jared Wilson. 

Jared Wilson fled in a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder and was considered armed and dangerous. A Department of Public Safety trooper located the suspect vehicle near Anderson County around 11:30 a.m. Jared Wilson was detained and transported to Anderson County Sheriff's Department.

Tyler Investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Murder on Jared Wilson, bond was set at $500,000 by Judge Kennedy. 

Editor's Note: In an original version of this story, Tyler Police released the victim's name as Thomas Wilson. They were later informed that the victim's name was Tommy. The victim was also referred to as the uncle of the Jared Wilson's girlfriend by Tyler Police. That information has also been corrected by the police department to show that the victim and Jared Wilson's girlfriend had no family relationship.
