While investigating the shooting, police said they obtained a search warrant for the apartment, which is rented by Zimmerman, and discovered an operating meth lab. Officials from the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team were contacted and have taken over the cleanup and investigation of the lab.

Police said a 22-year-old Marquette man was identified as a suspect and is lodged in the Marquette County Jail on an open murder charge and a parole violation.

The suspect, who is not being identified until his arraignment, was found hiding in a car across the street from the apartment in a parking lot. He was taken into custody without incident.

Police ask members of the public with information on the case to call 228-0400.
