A man was killed during a shooting on Tuesday in Valley Grande.

According to Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson, the shooting happened around the 7700 block of County Road 22.

Jackson identified the suspect as Demetrius Shaw, who’s being charged with capital murder during a robbery. He identified Arthur Sturdivant Jr. as the victim.

When DCSO officers responded to the scene,Jackson said they found the victim lying unresponsive. He also said that the suspect ran into a house and remained inside until law enforcement arrived and talked him into surrendering.

Jackson said the suspect will have a initial court appearance on Wednesday afternoon in Circuit Court Judge Collins Pettaway Jr. at the Dallas County Courthouse.

It’s the first murder in Dallas County in almost two years, according to Dallas County Sheriff Mike Granthum.

“The Dallas County Sheriff’s Office did a great job of arresting him without further bloodshed,” Jackson said.
