U.S. Marshals and Memphis Police Capture First Degree Murder Suspect

For immediate release

Memphis, TN – U.S. Marshals and Memphis Police announce the capture Demario Wilson, 18, of Memphis, who was wanted for a deadly shooting and robbery that took place in an apartment complex in the Raleigh area of Memphis last month.

On April 18th, 2024, the Memphis Police Department (MPD) responded to a shooting at Summit Arbors Circle and Hidden Woods Cove. Officers arrived and found a 20-year-old man who sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene. A witness stated it was a robbery over a gaming system. The suspects fled in a black Dodge Charger, which has since been recovered.

On April 29th, Memphis Police obtained a warrant out of Shelby County General Sessions Court charging Wilson with First Degree Murder and Aggravated Robbery. The case was later adopted by the U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force (TRVFTF) to find and apprehend Wilson.

Today, the U.S. Marshals TRVFTF and MPD Fugitive Apprehension Team went to a residence in the 2200 block of Eldridge Avenue in Memphis. Investigators knocked and announced at the front door. Wilson tried to flee out a back window but retreated into the house when spotted. Investigators in the backyard called Wilson out from the window, and he surrendered without incident.

The U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force is a multi-agency task force within Western Tennessee. The TRVFTF has offices in Memphis and Jackson, and its membership is primarily composed of Deputy U.S. Marshals, Shelby, Fayette, and Tipton County Sheriff’s Deputies, Memphis and Jackson Police Officers, the Tennessee Department of Correction Special Agents and the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Since 2021, the TRVFTF has captured over 2,600 violent offenders and sexual predators.
