      Police have made an arrest in connection with the death of a man whose body was found when officers answered a call about an after-hours disturbance at a West Texas law office.

      A release from Lubbock police says 27-year-old Jestin Wayne Hooker was arrested on a charge of homicide hours after he was detained for questioning.

      Jail records show Hooker, who was described in the release as a roommate of the victim, does not yet have an attorney.

      Officers before dawn Wednesday responded to the downtown offices of Shackelford, Hawkins & Searcy.

      The name of the man who died and a possible cause of death were not immediately released.

      Police Sgt. Jason Lewis says arriving officers found the body inside the building.

      Further details weren't immediately available.
