A Huntington, West Virginia SWAT team found 36-year-old Richard Willis at a housing complex there last Friday.
Willis was wanted by Columbus, Ohio police in connection with last summer's shooting death of Desmond Allison. Authorities say the shooting happened during an argument.
Allison played basketball for the Wildcats from 1998 to 2000.
Police say Willis had been hiding out in Huntington under an assumed name.
