(ABC 6 News) - A homicide suspect, who allegedly shot a woman to death in Chicago, was arrested in Rochester Tuesday night.

The Rochester Police Department says Khalila Southall was arrested after an officer responded to a domestic call in the 100 block of 8th Avenue S.E.

The officer grew suspicious when Southall gave a false name. The officer was eventually able to discover her real name and the fact that she had a homicide warrant out for a recent shooting in Chicago.

Police say Southall is wanted for a shooting that started as an argument. The argument took place at a Citgo Gas Station on August 26th, in south Chicago. Authorities say Southall eventually shot the victim twice killing her.

They say there is also surveillance video of the shooting.

Rochester police say they were aware that Southall may be in Rochester. She's currently in custody at the Olmsted County Detention center awaiting transfer.
