Alleged suspect in Lannie’s BBQ murder arrested Tuesday

The U.S. Marshals have found the man who allegedly killed former Dallas County High School Assistant Coach Christopher Harrell in Montgomery on Tuesday.

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson said that Jerry Johnson was arrested in Montgomery by the U.S. Marshals. Jackson said Johnson was found at a woman’s home in Montgomery. He did not reveal the woman’s identity.

Jackson said that the Selma Police Department transferred Johnson to the Dallas County Jail Tuesday. Jackson said Johnson is under no bond.

According to Jackson, Johnson is scheduled to get arraigned and be charged with capital murder, a murder and robbery this week in the Dallas County Courthouse.

On Feb. 4, Harrell arrived at Lannie’s BBQ on Medical Center Parkway to pick up dinner and was approached by at least one suspect – possibly two – when he returned to his vehicle. Harrell was fatally shot and the SPD identified Johnson as the suspect 24 hours later.
