Man wanted in murder of DeKalb tattoo artist captured in Texas


KILLEEN, Texas - U.S. Marshals Service officials say a man wanted in the 2011 shooting death of a tattoo artist in DeKalb was captured Friday in Killeen, Texas.

Terrance Lamont Davis was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, with the help of several partnering agencies.

In December of 2013, an arrest warrant was issued by the Superior Court of DeKalb County, Georgia, charging Davis with murder of Andrew Fortune in Lithonia in 2011.

On Jan. 16, 2014, investigators determined that Davis was residing at a house in Killeen. In the early evening hours, Davis was seen leaving the home in a vehicle. A felony traffic stop was conducted and Davis was taken into custody without incident.

Davis is in custody in the Bell County Jail in Belton, Texas, awaiting extradition back to DeKalb County.
