A Georgia man suspected of killing his father was arrested in Florida on Sept. 22.
According to WMBB, Tyler Davis was arrested after his father, Julian Clifton Davis Jr., was found fatally shot in his Treasure Palm neighborhood home on Sept. 21.
Julian Davis' mother found him around 8 a.m. Sept. 22 and called 911, WMBB reported. Police say they quickly found information that led them to Tyler Davis as a suspect.
“The suspect had been living in Georgia my understanding there was a situation in Georgia where he was kicked out of a residence in Georgia and came down here for a few days is understanding and did exhibit some erratic behavior with family members but didn’t indicate to them that he was capable of doing something like this,” Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford said.
The Bay County Sheriff's Office credited its Bay Real-Time Operations Center for leading them to Tyler Davis, according to WMBB.
“We have our license plate readers and camera systems that were able to determine he fled the county in the early morning hours, which is a big benefit to us without that type of technology we would be looking here locally and that’s not to say they wouldn’t still be here but that kind of helps us put the pieces of the puzzle together,” Ford said.
Police found that Tyler Davis left Bay County around 2:30 a.m. Sept. 22. They tracked him down in Forsyth County, Georgia that afternoon, WMBB reported.
“Working with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office we were able to establish surveillance on him in Forsyth County, Georgia, we worked to obtain an arrest warrant here in Bay County and the Forsyth County SWAT team was able to safely take him into custody,” Ford said.
According to WMBB, Tyler Davis has not yet been charged with his father's murder, but he was arrested on an aggravated assault warrant.
