Man arrested for fatal shooting

A man is in custody, charged with the shooting death of a man outside a strip club in Allentown.

Ulysses Rodriguez was arrested Wednesday night for public drunkenness in Suffolk Co., N.Y., when police found an outstanding warrant for Rodriguez, said Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin.

Rodriguez, also known as 'Slime', was wanted in connection with the death of 21-year-old Tyree Wimberly, who was killed outside a strip club at 2327 Hanover Ave., on Jan. 26.

Witnesses said Rodriguez pulled out a gun and shot Wimberly after Wimberly refused to buy marijuana from him.

Rodriguez is awaiting extradition to Pennsylvania.
