Atlanta murder suspect captured in Killeen

KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) - A fugitive wanted for the 2011 murder of a man in Georgia has been captured in Killeen Thursday night.

Terrance Lamont Davis was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, Bell County Organized Crime Unit, the Killeen Police Department, and the Harker Heights Police Department. Davis was arrested Thursday night and is currently in the Bell County Jail awaiting extradition back to De Kalb County, GA.

An arrest warrant was issued for Davis that charged him with murder in the shooting death of Andrew Fortune, a tattoo artist, in Lithonia, Georgia in 2011. The warrant was issued by the Superior Court of De Kalb County.

Members of the U.S. Marshals Service’s Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force (SRFTF), which is based in Atlanta, started an investigation in the search for Davis in December 2013. In January, they discovered that Davis had fled to the Killeen area. SRFTF members requested assistance from the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) to find Davis in Central Texas.

The LSFTF conducted an investigation in the Central Texas area, and discovered that Davis was likely in Killeen, but did not know exactly where he was in Killeen. On Thursday, LSFTF members determined that Davis was living at a house in the 6400 block of Titanium Dr. in Killeen.

Thursday evening, Davis was seen leaving the house in a car. Police conducted a felony traffic stop and took Davis into custody without incident.

“The U.S. Marshals Service remains committed to assisting our state and local partners in bringing their fugitives to justice,” said Robert R. Almonte, U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Texas.
