A nearly 5-month search for a North Port shooting suspect has ended.
23-year old Tyrik Bell was arrested Friday night at a home in the 900 block of Cumberland Rd. in Venice. Police claim he pulled the trigger and killed 19-year-old Trent Bartol-Thomas back on January 10th.
Investigators say Bell and another man went into a home on Porto Chico Avenue in North Port demanding drugs and cash from those inside. A fight ensued, and the fatal shots were fired.
Bell is charged with aggravated assault, robbery and murder.
