TX – Terrance Lamont Davis was arrested yesterday by the United States
Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, Bell County Organized Crime
Unit and Killeen and Harker Heights Police Departments. In December of 2013,
an arrest warrant was issued by the Superior Court of De Kalb County,
Georgia charging Davis with murder in the shooting death of Tattoo Artist
Andrew Fortune in Lithonia, Georgia in 2011.
In December of 2013, members of the United States Marshals Service’s
Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force (SRFTF) based in Atlanta, Georgia
initiated an investigation in the search for Davis and in January of 2014,
discovered Davis had fled to the Killeen, Texas area. SRFTF members then
contacted Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) members, requesting
assistance in locating Davis in the Central Texas area.
LSFTF members then conducted an investigation in the Central Texas area that
indicated Davis was likely located in Killeen, Texas, but his exact
whereabouts were unknown. On January 16, 2014, LSFTF members determined that
Davis was residing at a house in the 6400 Block of Titanium Dr in Killeen.
In the early evening hours of January 16th, Davis was observed departing the
residence in a vehicle. A felony traffic stop was conducted and Davis was
taken into custody without incident.
Davis is currently in custody in the Bell County Jail in Belton, TX awaiting
extradition back to De Kalb County, GA.
Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas,
stated, “The U.S. Marshals Service remains committed to assisting our state
and local partners in bringing their fugitives to justice”.
