SPOKANE, WASH. -- The hunt for a North Spokane murder suspect ended Wednesday. Police confirmed that they arrested murder suspect Joshua Tillery, 33.   He was wanted for the murder of Devon Mack.

Officers found Tillery on at home near 2100 N. Ruby on Wednesday morning. Spokane police and U.S. Marshalls are on scene. Authorities said Tillery came out peacefully.

Angelina Orr witnessed the arrest at the home near Ruby and Baldwin.

“A whole bunch of cop cars pulled up to the driveway,” said Orr, “they all had their guns pulled, shields in front of their face. They called them to come out. A guy came out with his hands up. They arrested him.”

Authorities arrested Tillery and detained two other people. One of the detainees could face charges for rendering criminal assistance according to police. Officers said they have been monitoring the house for several days.

“It's still scary to even think about it, being that close, obviously he's been there for a couple days,” said Orr, “It's so scary to think I’ve been right here next door to him.”

Detectives believe Tillery, 33, shot Mack in the head at a Spokane home Friday, May 3th.

KREM 2 News spoke to Mack’s widow on Wednesday. She said she’s grateful that the search for Tillery is over, but it is doing little to ease her pain.

Police already questioned one person of interest, Tara Radar.

Court documents stated that Josh Tillery arrived at the house near Princeton and Lincoln carrying groceries shortly before Mack was killed. Major Crime's detectives believe Tillery shot Mack in the head inside the house.
