His arrest came more than three months after the killing of 31-year-old Mark Scott, who was paraprofessional at Pulliam Elementary School, where he worked in special education. He was also an assistant baseball coach for Edison High School.

The shooting happened in the middle of the day on Feb. 11 in the 8000 block of North El Dorado Street.

Police have not released any information about a motive. 

Back in February, KCRA reported that Scott's fiancée, Alyssa Henderson, said he was on his lunch break, waiting to meet with her when he was shot. Henderson said that Scott was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Thomasson was scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
