A man has been charged in the fatal shooting of a man at a Coliseum Boulevard hotel last month.

Joshua R. Mackin, 33, was arrested Friday for the murder of Samuel Douglas Westlake, who was found shot to death in a vehicle in the parking lot of the Suburban Extended Stay Hotel, 3330 Coliseum Blvd., on Feb. 19.

According to a witness, Mackin shot Westlake, his half-brother, after an argument about a sexual relationship Westlake was allegedly having with Mackin’s girlfriend.

Mackin is being held without bond in the Allen County Jail. A hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
