Killeen police nab Georgia murder fugitive


Killeen police have arrested a Georgia murder fugitive.

Georgia authorities had gotten a tip that 22-year-old Curtis Dwayne Jackson, Jr might be hiding in the Killeen area.

After a brief search, Killeen officers found him in the 1600 block of East FM 3470 and took him into custody without a fight.

He  will now be sent back to Georgia to face charges.

Jackson is one of five suspects in the October 2015 murder of 23-year-old Vernard Mays who was shot as he answered a knock on the back door of his  mother’s home in Macon, Georgia
