21-year-old Seth Joseph Rouzan has been arrested for the murder of Jeffrey Labord on December 12. Labord was found by a paper carrier around 5 o'clock Tuesday morning. He died of a gunshot wound to the head.

His car was later found abandoned on McElmurray Drive, and his home had been broken into.

Rouzan was taken into custody at his residence on McElmurray Drive. Several items that were taken from Labord's home have been recovered, but the investigation is still ongoing.

The Richmond County Sheriff's Office says the public was "instrumental in bringing a quick resolution to this murder investigation".

Rouzan is charged with murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and burglary. He is being held at the Richmond County Jail.
