NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A truck driver from Mississippi has been arrested for a 2020 murder.
Metro police say 23-year-old Alex Williams of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, surrendered Wednesday night on a first degree murder indictment. Williams is accused of shooting 55-year-old Darrell Walker behind a market on W. Trinity Lane on August 15.
Officers responded to the shooting call at around 12:21 a.m. that morning and found Walker suffering from gunshot wounds. He died shortly after arriving at a local hospital. A witness who heard the shots told police they saw a person run from the scene toward W. Trinity Lane.
Williams was free on bond for a Mississippi murder when he was arrested Wednesday night, according to police.
He is currently being held without bond and will soon be arraigned in Criminal Court.
