Los Angeles police have made an arrest in the October slaying of a transgender woman in East Hollywood.

Aniya Knee Parker, 47, was fatally shot near Melrose and North Kenmore avenues on Oct. 2 during a dispute with three men. Police described the incident as a street robbery gone bad.

An LAPD spokeswoman said Monday evening that details about the arrest -- when it happened and the name of the person in custody -- aren’t yet available, adding that detectives are still looking for two other suspects.

Soon after the slaying, officials announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. It wasn’t immediately clear if police received a tip that led to the recent arrest.
