Tromon Lamari Hendon, 31, was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant in Ardmore Tuesday afternoon. Hendon was sought by law enforcement authorities for assault with a dangerous weapon in a manner likely to produce death following a shooting in Davis Sunday morning.
Sharlotte Arrington, a friend of Hendon’s, was also arrested pending the charge of accessory after the fact to do assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in a manner likely to cause death.
Murray County District Attorney John Walton said Hendon will appear in district court today, and a request for bond to be denied will be made.
Davis Police Chief Danny Cooper said the victim in the shooting, Jonathan Jones of Sulphur, was transported to Norman where he underwent non-life threatening surgery. Cooper said Jones is in critical but stable condition with gunshot wounds to the left side of his face and shoulder. Authorities have indicated the shooting was connected to a drug deal.
The shooting took place at Timothy Lampkin's residence. Lampkin was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance in district court Monday.
Cooper said the United States Marshall's Fugitive Task Force made the arrest of Hendon, less than 24 hours after the warrant was issued.
"He was in front of Walmart in Ardmore around 1 p.m.," Cooper said. "He was taken into custody without incident and transported back to Murray County." Cooper said the weapon used in the shooting has not been recovered and the investigation is ongoing. He also said both Hendon and Arrington have indicated they are homeless.
