WILKES-BARRE — Police in Wilkes-Barre say they arrested the man responsible for the city’s 13th homicide.

Police say he shot Shantique Goodson at Sherman Hills apartments on Parkview Circle on Monday.

She was taken to the hospital in an SUV then rushed to another hospital where she died.

Police have not released a motive, but they do say there was an argument between the suspect, the victim, and another man before the shots were fired.
