Idaho Falls, Idaho • A 23-year-old Idaho Falls man suspected in a weekend shooting death outside a girl's 15th birthday party in southeastern Idaho has been arrested in southwestern Utah.

Emmanuel Jesus Granados was arrested shortly before 11 p.m. Sunday in Parowan City, Utah. Officials say he faces a second-degree murder charge.

Granados was wanted in the shooting of 22-year-old Fermin Lemus early Sunday. Police say two men arrived at the girl's party in Rigby and confronted Lemus. Lemus later went with the men to the parking lot, where the shooting took place.

The sheriff's office in Iron County, Utah, says it received a tip that Granados had boarded a bus in Salt Lake City before making the arrest.
