Dallas police have arrested Nickey Maxwell Van Exel, 20, in the shooting death of Bradley Eyo.

According to the Dallas Observer:
Bradley Eyo, who was killed last weekend
The day after Christmas, Bradley Eyo (Facebook) was found shot to death on Barnes Bridge Road near Lake Ray Hubbard. But Dallas homicide detective and Garland police discovered during their investigation that Eyo, whose friends have made him this tribute, had been killed elsewhere and dumped near the lake. In advance of a 3 p.m. press conference at DPD HQ today, police this afternoon released the name of the man arrested in the young Nigerian man's death: 20-year-old Nickey Maxwell Van Exel, who is indeed the son of the former Dallas Maverick, and current Atlanta Hawks player development instructor, Nick Van Exel. Nickey was arrested last night and sits in the Lew Sterrett Justice Center on a $1-million bond, charged with capital murder; curiously, someone has written on Van Exel's Wikipedia page that Nickey and Bradley were best friends.
