    CASSELBERRY, Fla. - A man has been arrested in connection with a deadly shooting that happened in May at a shopping plaza parking lot in Casselberry, police said.

     

    Erric Pipkin, 20, of Winter Park, was ordered by a judge Thursday to remain in jail without bail.  

     

    "Erric Joseph Pipkin, you are charged with homicide," the judge said.

     

    Santo Rodriguez was found shot to death inside a car at the Market Square Plaza, police said.

     

    Investigators said surveillance cameras from the plaza, tips from the public and area cellphone towers helped them solve the case.

    Rodriguez's car crashed into a building. 

     

    Police said they pinpointed Pipkin's cellphone to the plaza at the time of the killing.
