Murder suspect captured in Hernando County

- The manhunt for murder suspect Jonathan Cobb ended Thursday, after deputies located him in the parking lot of a Hampton Inn in Hernando County.

Deputies say he shot and killed 52-year-old Bobby Jordan Wednesday at a home off Hanson Road in Pasco County, but by the time authorities arrived on scene, 38-year-old Cobb had fled. 

Cobb remained on the run Thursday morning, but investigators say he was found in the parking lot of the Hampton Inn on Cortez Blvd. around 8a.m. 

Cobb's vehicle was located earlier at a Winn-Dixie in Spring Hill. 

Investigators have provided very little details about the case but said the shooting may have started after an argument.

Cobb is being held on charges of second-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon.
