Dallas police arrested a 45-year-old man Tuesday in the fatal shooting of an Army veteran on an Uptown street.
Corey Antwon Thompson is in the Dallas County Jail on a charge of murder. Bond is set at $1.25 million.
Butler, 46, had struggled with PTSD and experienced homelessness after his service but his family told Star-Telegram affiliate WFAA, things were looking up for him.
Thompson was arrested at the 2600 block of Bickers Street, just four miles from where Butler was slain.
