A person of interest in a Florida homicide last month was taken into custody in Las Vegas early Thursday after a brief police pursuit that ended in a rollover crash at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

Members of the state Fugitive Investigative Strike Team arrested Kenneth Ellis on a warrant for a felony burglary charge. But, according to U.S. Marshals Service Assistant Chief Deputy Steven Carpenter, authorities had also identified Ellis as a person of interest in a condo fire on Sept. 27 that left one man dead in Tarpon Springs, Florida, about 30 miles outside Tampa Bay.

Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Jose Hernandez said that Ellis, 34, took off after law enforcement tried to pull him over, leading them on a chase that eventually ended at Blue Diamond and Moenkopi roads, between Calico Basin and the Red Rock Canyon campgrounds.
