HIALEAH (CBS4) - A Hialeah business man has turned himself into police after he allegedly shot and killed a former employee.

Adolfo Perez, 61, has been charged with murder in the Monday's death of 48-year old Jesus Torres.

According to police, witnesses said they saw Perez park his white Ford Mustang near the entrance to Torres' condo complex in the 13-hundred block of W 46th Street at around 1:30 p.m. Perez then reportedly got out of his car and started arguing with Torres over money. As the argument grew more heated, police say Perez drew a gun and shot Torres who collapsed onto the ground. Police said Perez then left Torres to die on the sidewalk.

Police launched a massive manhunt for Perez after the shooting but were unable to find him. Tuesday morning he voluntarily turned himself in, was taken into custody and charged.
