(COLUMBUS) - A Columbus man charged with the murder of 50-year-old Gary Joseph Brown was arrested Sunday, in Miami, Florida just before boarding a flight to Panama.

46-year-old Clifton Hamilton Cook Sr. is being held without bond in a Miami jail.

Brown died early Friday at Columbus Region Hospital from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Bartholomew County Prosecutor Bill Nash says his office filed the murder charge Sunday morning so that Cook's name could be entered into a national database.

He says the murder warrant was issued "just in the nick of time" for Miami airport police to arrest Cook.

A home owned by Cook was searched Friday by police.
