More than a week of avoiding law enforcement came to an end on Wednesday for murder suspect Darnell Deshawn Durr Jr.
The 23-year-old turned himself in at the Corinth Police Department Wednesday morning, Capt. Dell Green said. Durr was wanted in connection with the Labor Day shooting death of Anthony Tyrell Jamison, 19, at the Farmington Arms Apartments, 200 West Harris Circle. Another suspect, Previs “Malik” Williams, 17, of Wenasoga Road, turned himself in two days after the shooting.
Green said Durr and Jamison have been dating sisters, and there had been an earlier domestic dispute between Durr and his girlfriend, who lives at the apartments. That dispute had set the tone for the conflict that followed.
Jamison and his girlfriend went to the apartments afterward to help accommodate Durr’s girlfriend, and that is when the fatal altercation occurred, said Green.
It happened about 8:35 p.m. on Labor Day. Witnesses told police the suspects approached Jamison, and Durr discharged the firearm several times. The two then fled the scene.
Jamison is from New Jersey, and his body has been returned there.
