ROSELAWN, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati police have arrested a suspect connected to the shooting death of an ATM technician in broad daylight on Tuesday.

Yonah Israel, 36, was taken into custody Wednesday around 2:30 p.m. after he allegedly shot and killed Daniel Muscarella at a free-standing PNC Bank ATM.

Authorities say Israel was arrested in the 7100 block of Reading Road, the same area where Muscarella was shot multiple times just over 24 hours earlier.

Israel and Muscarella, who was servicing the machine, engaged in a verbal altercation before the shooting, according to a Captain Elliot Isaac. Investigators have not ruled out that it was a robbery situation, but say a motive is still being determined.

Officials say they believe Israel, who has a criminal history, acted alone in the shooting.

"He is very familiar to the officers in the district four area," Captain Isaac said at a press conference Wednesday, where Mayor John Cranley and City Manager Harry Black were in attendance.

"I'm here to thank police for their quick work to bring justice to this heinous murder and ensure the citizens of Cincinnati that we are doing everything in our power to reduce the violence, shootings," Mayor Cranley said.

Cranley also mentioned the 19 officers who have recently been added to the force, with 60 more graduating in February in efforts to reduce crime around the city.

Physical evidence and witnesses were key to the investigation, Captain Isaac said. Authorities interviewed at least one dozen witnesses and received numerous Crime Stopper tips.

Charges against Israel are reportedly pending.
