A third suspect in the October shooting of a Navarro College student has turned himself into police Monday.
Sherrod Jamal Bell, 20, of Dallas, turned himself into Corsicana Police on Monday afternoon. He was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Vicki Gray, and bond set at $100,000. He remained in jail as of Wednesday afternoon.
His family accompanied him to the police station, Bratton said.
“It’s not really unusual,” said Police Chief Randy Bratton. “People don’t want to have to look over their shoulder and wonder are the police going to come get them. If they’re smart, they’ll turn themselves in.”
Jeremiah Blair, a 21-year-old Navarro College student, was seriously wounded Oct. 20 while in his apartment in the 600 block of S. 42nd Street in Corsicana by three men. The early evening shooting sparked a manhunt in western Corsicana that went on for more than 12 hours. Still, the first official arrest of a suspect didn’t come until Nov. 2, when Darrick Bailey, 19, was picked up in Seagoville and charged with aggravated robbery. On Nov. 19, Olando Ishade Kennedy, 22, was arrested in Terrell, and also charged in connection with the crime. His bond was set at $200,000.
All three men are charged with aggravated robbery, although their involvement in the crime is somewhat different, Bratton said. He declined to go into details.
The case will now be turned over to the Navarro County District Attorney’s office, Bratton said.
