NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A murder suspect who has been on the run for more than four years was arrested and booked into the Metro jail on Thursday morning.

Police have been looking for Juan Diego Vargas since March 2010.

Vargas was found early Thursday morning and charged with criminal homicide.

The victim, Santos Reyes, was shot in the head at the Las Potrancas bar on Haywood Lane on March 1, 2010, after playing pool with Juan Diego Vargas and his brother, Adolfo Vargas.

Police found the suspect's brother the day after the shooting, and he told officers that Juan Diego Vargas shot Reyes during an argument after the game.

Juan Diego Vargas is being held in the Metro jail on $2.5 million bond.
