Jacksonville police have arrested a man in connection with the shooting death of another man on the Westside last month.

Police said 34-year-old William McFaline, of Orange Park, was shot at an apartment complex in the 5600 block of California Avenue on May 9, then drove away through several back yards in the area. McFaline was found dead in his car when it crashed a few blocks away, police said.

Rasean Vann, 20, turned himself in Thursday, police said.

Police said McFaline and Vann had arranged to meet for a drug deal when the shooting happened.

Investigators said Vann admitted that he planned to rob McFaline, but he denied shooting him.
