Metro Police say coordinated police work led to today’s arrest of homicide suspect Zamar Redmond, 27, for the June 22nd fatal shooting of Andre L. McDonald near the intersection of 12th Avenue North and Jefferson Street.
An investigation led by North Precinct Detective Myriah Iles resulted in the identification of Redmond as the gunman who allegedly shot McDonald, 26, during an illegal drug transaction. The two men had reportedly argued prior to the shooting.
North Precinct detectives this afternoon, with the assistance of the Juvenile Crime Task Force, located Redmond at a residence in Madison where he was taken into custody. In addition to criminal homicide, Redmond is also charged with attempting to rob another man who was with McDonald.
Redmond has prior convictions for aggravated robbery, robbery, aggravated burglary, and cocaine possession.
