LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Police are searching for a man who they are considering armed and dangerous and who they believe is the shooter in the murder of a man once involved in a cult-like group out of Oregon.
Authorities named Arenn Lamar Davis, 21, as a third suspect in Brian Brinson's murder. Brinson, 52, was found shot to death in his car early Sunday morning near 24th Place and Avenue L.
Lubbock Police have distributed Davis' wanted poster all over town. Davis is also known by his street name "Black." The last known address for Davis is in the 1900 block of Colgate.
"He is not in custody. We are not sure of his where abouts. We do have some indications he may of left the city of Lubbock," said Captain Greg Stevens with the Lubbock Police Department.
Davis is a black male, 5'8" tall and around 140 pounds. Davis, along with Devante Jones, 18, and Zeven Sanders, 16, are all charged with Brinson's murder.
Jones is in the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $500,000 bond and Sanders is in the Juvenile Detention Center. The District Attorney is recommending a $500,000 bond for Davis.
According to Sanders' witness statement to the Lubbock Police, he claims Brinson touched him inappropriately last month. Brinson was a convicted sex offender. Sanders claimed in his sworn statement that a third man, Arenn Davis called "Black" was the one who shot and killed Brinson.
The arrest warrant states Davis asked Brinson for a ride, when he refused, that's when Sanders says he heard a gunshot and the car then crashed into a tree. The warrant goes on to say the three men returned and moved the car.
According to the arrest warrant, police say a partial print was lifted from the rear passenger window of Brinson's car which positively matched Davis' finger print.
"Now, our biggest concern is getting Mr. Davis into custody because we do consider him to be a threat to the public at large," said Stevens. Officials say they do not know where Davis is, but there are indications that he has left Lubbock.
The Lubbock Police Department is urging the public to call them with any information about Arenn Davis' whereabouts because he is considered armed and dangerous.
If you have any information about Davis or where he is, you are urged to call Crime Line at 806-741-1000. You can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.
