(KATV) Bald Knob - A man arrested during a domestic dispute in Bald Knob came clean and told officers he was wanted for an unsolved murder out of South Carolina.

Alfred Olmos has had several aliases over the years and sure enough, South Carolina investigators were looking for him, except they know him as Jose Tostado. Police confirm they are the same man.

In 2000, Olmos was a suspect in a fatal shooting that happened outside a night club. He admits his rifle and car were used but says he wasn't the shooter. Olmos claims a man by the name of Andreas was the trigger man. He doesn't know his last name and assumes Andreas fled back to Mexico.

The murder happened at Sambo Nightclub in Horry County, South Carolina at about 1 a.m. September 16, 2000. The victim was Alfonso Fuentes. Another man was also injured during the shooting.

Olmos was arrested for Third-Degree Assault on a family member in Bald Knob.
