U.S. Marshals have apprehended a suspect in the murder of a Lowndesboro man.
Vardarius Hall, 23, of Selma, was arrested Tuesday by U.S. Marshals in Miami, Fla., according to Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson.
Hall is pending extradition back to Dallas County. Since June 12, he has been sought for the murder of 27-year-ld Jermaine Tarver of Lowndesboro at Towns Circle in the Selma Police jurisdiction following an altercation over personal property.
“I knew he wasn’t going to be gone too long,” Jackson said. “It’s a relief for the public to know that the suspected killer is caught. It shows good coordination between the police and (U.S.) Marshals and the Task Force and all these other agencies that are working together.”
Jalysa Shanjetti Turner, 19, and Kenyatta Shantae Wilson, 18, of Selma, were arrested and charged with hindering prosecution in the first degree, a Class B felony, for allegedly assisting Hall to escape Alabama immediately following the shooting.
A second suspect, La’Darrius Dees, 18, of Selma was arrested and charged with capital murder, attempting to commit murder and discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.
Authorities believe on the night of the shooting Tarver was outside playing cards when approached by Hall about personal property. After Tarver and Hall exchanged some words, Hall retrieved a gun and began shooting at Tarver.
Dees opened fire at a second victim who was attempting to aide Tarver. The second victim reported no critical injuries.
Tarver was transported to Vaughn Regional Medical Center where he died from multiple gunshot wounds to the torso.
