Offense: Warrant of Arrest (Code of Criminal Procedure Section 15.01)
Case Number: 1609010150

Twenty eight year old Jeremiah Jenkins (2/13/1988), who was a fugitive with a warrant for his arrest related to the Shooters Depot Murder, surrendered to authorities Friday afternoon.

The Corpus Christi Police Detective assigned to the capital murder case was notified by an attorney’s office that Jenkins was present at the attorney’s office and was ready to peacefully surrender to authorities. The Detective notified the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitives and Violent Offenders Task Force and the task force picked up Jenkins, verified his identity, then delivered Jenkins to the city detention center.

Corpus Christi Police Officers responded to a robbery call at the Shooters Depot gun shop at about 9pm on September 1, 2016.  Officers found a 63-year-old man and 38-year-old man were both seriously injured by what appeared to be gunshots.  The 63-year-old man died short time later after he was transported to the hospital.  The 38-year-old man was in serious condition at a local hospital.  Detectives believe that the incident started as a robbery of the business sometime between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.

A vehicle that belonged to one of the victims was found loaded with weapons a short time after the incident at the 900 block of Corn Products road.

Jenkins is the third arrest related to this event preceded by 19-year-old Truanser Hughes and 20-year-old Filamir Gomez. Police continue to search for a fourth suspect in this case and have a warrant for the arrest of 22-year-old Darien Marshall (1/31/1994).

Anyone with any information to locate Darien Marshall should call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS or submit the information online at http://www.888TIPS.com. Information provided to Crime Stoppers is completely anonymous and if the information leads to an arrest, it could earn you up to $2,500 in cash.
