LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Lexington Police swarmed the Bryan Station Inn Thursday morning in search of a murder suspect before finding him.

Jameel Cox, 28, is being charged with murder, robbery and evidence tampering.

Police say Cox shot and killed 32-year-old Aaron Leach at Leach's home on Lindy Lane on Monday.

Early on Thursday, officers tried to serve a warrant at the Bryan Station Inn, but Cox wouldn't come out. A special response team was called in, and that is when Cox surrendered.

Cox is being held in the Fayette County Detention Center.
