Hot Springs, Arkansas Stephon Harris murder suspect surrenders.
BREAKING NEWS-GARLAND COUNTY
Hours after the Hot Springs Police Department offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to his “immediate arrest,” fugitive suspect Stephon Tyrone Harris surrendered without incident to police late Wednesday night.
“Tonight, through a joint effort with the Garland County Sheriff Department and the Hot Springs Police Department, at 9:55 p.m. Stephon Harris … turned himself in to authorities without incident,” the police department said in a news release.
“The police department appreciates the community’s tips and information that we received concerning this investigation during the past week,” the release said.
His surrender comes after a weeklong series of manhunts over two counties following a multiple shooting on Lacey Street last Thursday.
Harris initially had warrants for five counts of first-degree battery, but one count was upgraded to first-degree murder after one of the victims, Tyler Donaldson, 23, died of his injuries at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock over the weekend.
Anthony James Camden, 23, was arrested last Thursday in connection with the shootings, and is facing the same charges as Harris. He remains in custody at the Garland County Detention Center in lieu of $250,000 bond and is set to appear Sept. 27 on the murder charge and Oct. 18 on the battery charges.
