The Texarkana Texas Police Department arrested a second suspect in a weekend homicide that took place at a local car wash.
Authorities say Jimmy Jerome Dancer, 29, of Texarkana Texas, turned himself into officers at the Bi-State Criminal Justice Center last night, March 27, 2017.
Officers were dispatched to the Bay Wash at 4203 N. Stateline Avenue on Saturday at 10:10PM in regard to a shooting victim who was unresponsive. Officers arrived and discovered Tilford Barfield III, 25, of Atlanta, Texas, laying on the ground with several gunshot wounds to his abdomen and legs.
Barfield was transported to Christus St. Michael by LifeNet EMS, where he was later pronounced dead.
According to witnesses, a fight broke out at the car wash. As Barfield watched, he was shot several times. Dancer and Lee Lewis allegedly fled the scene in a red Chevrolet Tahoe prior to officers’ arrival. Lewis was arrested without incident on Sunday morning at his Magnolia Street residence.
Both Dancer and Lewis are charged with murder and are being held in the Bi-State Jail. Lewis’ bond was set at $500,000. A bond has not yet been set for Dancer.
