GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -

A SWAT team arrested a 25-year-old man from Portland on Thursday in the March 10 killing of a Gresham man.

Gresham police said the suspect, Miguel Carney, knew the victim, Shane Brumbaugh, prior to the killing.

"There is relief, but there's no justice, I don't feel, because he's not coming home," said Gina Brumbaugh, Shane Brumbaugh's mother.

Officers served two search warrants in the metro area Thursday around 4:30 a.m., and they arrested Carney in the 2900 block of Northeast 23rd Avenue in Gresham.

Detectives said more arrests are possible and the investigation isn't over yet.

Carney is being held in the Multnomah County Detention Center on one count of murder.

We're learning more about Carney.

A 2010 YouTube video shows Carney being interviewed about graduating from Project YESS - a Youth Education and Employment Program which is designed to help students get a GED and eventually a job.

In that interview, he says he wants to attend Mount Hood Community College and study philosophy and music.

Carney was also an aspiring rap artists, known as Mic L.

His web site said he started at the age of 13 writing hip hop songs to release his feelings.

Investigators had previously offered a $1,000 reward in Brumbaugh's death.

He died in his home in the 1400 block of Northeast Paropa Court after being shot March 10 at about 6:30 p.m. Police said the suspects arrived on foot, shot Brumbaugh outside the home and then fled in a car.

Brumbaugh made it back inside his house, and a neighbor was performing CPR when police arrived. Brumbaugh died at the scene of a gunshot wound to the chest.

Meanwhile, the mother of the man Carney is accused of killing continues to cope with the loss.

"It's never going to ever be the same, my life will never be the same without him," said Brumbaugh.

Since the shooting, several police agencies have taken part in the investigation, including the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office and the East County Major Crimes Team.

Carney will make his first court appearance Friday morning.
