"There were multiple tips identifying this defendant based on the media release of the surveillance video as the person that did the shooting," the prosecutor said.

Last month, deputies released video of the Sept. 21 shooting, which showed two men getting into a fight before another man opened fire.

The video then showed the victim limping away as the suspect drove away in a white SUV.

According to the state attorney's office, the vehicle was found a few days later after it was set on fire.

Prosecutors said deputies were able to link Mosley to the SUV and shooting scene through tips and the vehicle's identification number.

Mosley was arrested Wednesday and faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
