Plymouth, MN (KROC-AM News) - The suspect in the road rage murder of a youth baseball coach in the Twin Cities in July is a Chicago man.

The Plymouth Police Department says 33-year-old Jamal Smith was located and arrested with assistance from the US Marshals Service and the Decatur Illinois Police Department. He is being held in Illinois on suspicion of second-degree murder for the July 6 shooting death of Jay Boughton and is awaiting extradition to Minnesota.

He was driving home from a youth baseball game with his teenage son on Highway 169 and the western Twin Cities suburb when he was fatally shot by the driver of another vehicle. The investigators were initially hampered because of a vague description of the suspect’s vehicle and fuzzy photos of the SUV. They eventually found some clearer photos and were able to locate and recover the Chevrolet suburban on July 23rd.
