COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A fifth and final arrest has been made in connection with an April 2018 murder at a Pizza Hut.

21-year-old Tyree Smith was taken into custody in Tulsa, Oklahoma following a traffic stop.

Smith and four other suspects have all been arrested and charged with the murder of 32-year-old aspiring rapper Branden Denson, also known as “Billion Dollar BD.”

Police found Denson deceased from a gunshot wound at the Pizza Hut on Buena Vista Rd. in Columbus on Apr. 6, 2018.

Smith is in the process of being extradited to Columbus. Once the process is complete, a preliminary hearing date will be set.
