[Updated w/ Mug Shot]

1/17/2013 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0117_robert_thomas_mugshotThe person who allegedly shot and killed a man outside a Hollywood nightclub has been arrested ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Robert Earl Thomas III was hiding at a friend's house in Las Vegas when cops entered the premises last night and placed him under arrest for murder.  He surrendered without a struggle.

TMZ posted video of the shooter outside Empire nightclub when he aimed the gun and fired, killing one man and wounding another.  The video clearly shows the shooter and law enforcement tells us they got a number of tips from people who saw it and that led to Thomas' capture.

Thomas is 22 years old and lives in Los Angeles.

Thomas is currently being held in a Vegas jail and prosecutors plan to extradite him to California.

This whole story is very sad not only for the victim but for the shooter also . I feel for both families . two lives gone with one bullet . May God rest the soul of Andre and may God have mercy on Robert . Even though what he did was wrong I pray that God is the final decider in this case and that during Robert's time away he gets closer to the Lord .

21 years old! Did this idiot not have ONE person in his life show him right from wrong?? If he grew up in a neighborhood where "gangstas" are considered normal his parents should be taken out behind the woodpile. My younger son is 23 now, but he learned respect, responsibility, and compassion at a young age. If I EVER had a hint that he was hanging with the wrong people, or doing something wrong his father or myself were on him now.

Jeez, I just saw the video. I can't believe such blatant disregard for human life! Maybe I live in a bubble to be shocked at this, b/c from his mug shot, it looks like he has no remorse and is ready to kill again

Like I said before, he was hiding like a little bitch and I bet all those "tips" were his supposed homies. He is still trying to look hard on his mug shot. No need to act hard, soon something hard will be sliding up in ya!
