Police arrested two Paris men Saturday morning on capital murder charges in connection with a homicide early Friday in west Paris.
Adrianandious Lajuan Blackeyes, 21, of Paris, and Tyriekus Drashon Edwards, 18, of Paris, were arrested without incident at residences in Paris, police chief Bob Hundley said.
The body of Roland Dekeith Williams, 28, of 1421 W. Cherry and formerly of 951 Van Zandt St., was found about 4:30 a.m. Friday near the intersection of West Austin Street and Southwest 19th Street after police received a report of gunshots in the vicinity.
Williams had been shot several times.
More arrests are possible, the chief indicated.
“Investigators are still working on identification of others who were involved in what appears to have been an attempted robbery,” Hundley said.
The 5-foot-4, 138-pound Blackeyes and the 5-10, 225-pound Edwards remained in the city jail awaiting arraignment, the police chief said.
Both Blackeyes and Edwards have recent arrests:
A 28-year-old Paris man was shot and killed around 4:30 a.m. Frisday in west Paris.
Police chief Bob Hundley said police officers responding to a report of gunshots arrived to find the body of Roland Dekeith Williams off the 1800 block of West Austin Street, near southwest 19th Street.
Williams’ address was listed as 1421 W. Cherry. According to state driver’s license records, Williams previously lived at 951 Van Zandt St.
Several witnesses came forward with information involving the incident.
“Officers have learned that three suspects wearing some type of facial covering had entered a residence which faces 19th Southwest, in an apparent robbery attempt,” Hundley said.
According to police, the location where his body was found was originally identified incorrectly as the 1800 block of W. Kaufman. The location was actually a block farther to the south — off the 1800 block of W. Austin.
“The body has been taken to the metroplex area for examination as to cause of death,” stated Hundley. “Investigation is continuing and there is no other information available at this time. If there is update in the case, information will be released Saturday morning.”
Check back with the Extra! on Saturday for updates on the case.
