The hunt for a Hoover man accused of killing his pregnant wife, 29-year-old Rashon Epps, on Saturday came to end when authorities arrested 29-year-old Brian Epps in Bessemer.

Hoover police confirm that Brian Epps was arrested without incident at a location on Alabama Avenue shortly after 9:40 p.m. Tuesday.  Brian Epps had been on the run since Saturday after his wife was found dead in the parking lot of her home in Hoover with a gunshot wound to her head.

Earlier Tuesday, Rashon Epps’ father, family members and friends along with community activists such as the NAACP  and The Birmingham Chapter of the National Action Network held a news conference  about the murder and also publicly asked Brian Epps to surrender.

Police believe that after the shooting happened, Brian Epps tried to leave the scene in his car but crashed the vehicle. Then, a witness told police he or she saw Epps fleeing the scene on foot.

Investigators say the victim; Rashon Epps called police to let them know she was being assaulted by her husband Brian Epps and needed their help.

When officers arrived on scene, they found Rashon unresponsive and lying in the parking lot in front of her home. She was transported to UAB  hospital and was pronounced dead.

Right now, officials say they don't know what led up to the altercation between the two.
