SOUTH SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — A suspect has been arrested in connection to a homicide that happened outside a South Salt Lake supermarket on Monday night.

Damien Stafon Coleman, 27, faces charges of murder and aggravated robbery a day after police found Romeo Charles Stevens, 27, lying dead in the street with multiple gunshot wounds near Utopia Avenue and State Street outside the WinCo Foods parking lot.

According to arresting documents, surveillance video from the WinCo parking lot showed that Stevens was chased through the parking lot by two male suspects onto Main Street where he was shot.
