At around 12:20 a.m. Aug. 15, 2020, Nashville police responded to reports of a shooting and discovered Darrell Lamont Walker, 55, shot multiple times behind a market. He was rushed to TriStar Skyline Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.

A witness told officers a man ran from the scene of the shooting, and investigators later identified 23-year-old Alex Carmichael Williams of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, as a prime suspect.

Williams, who was out on bond in connection to another fatal shooting, surrendered to Nashville police on Sept. 8 and he was placed under arrest on a charge of first-degree murder, the Tennessean reported.

According to authorities, at the time of the Nashville shooting, Williams was wanted for allegedly shooting and killing 25-year-old Jermaine Hunter outside the victim’s home in Hattiesburg, on June 29, 2020. Williams surrendered to Mississippi law enforcement that October.

Williams also faces a first-degree murder charge in that case. He is currently being held without bond at the Davidson County Jail in Tennessee.
