Cordova is being placed in jail for the investigation of first degree murder. Snelling said he was not talking to authorities and asked for a lawyer.
Snelling said he was unsure if the victim and the suspect were residents of the Palmetto Club Apartments, but said they had family or friends that live there, which explained their presence at the apartment complex.
Cordova and the victim had been seen aguing in the leadup to the shooting, according to Snelling.
