Waxahachie Police detectives served a capital murder warrant Friday afternoon to the second suspect believed to be connected to the murder of a 26-year-old resident in January.
This is the second arrest related to the murder of Dimitri Collins.
Tyler Lemont Tate, a 25-year-old Cedar Hill resident, was first served a capital murder warrant in April. Waxahachie Police then arrested 23-year-old Kevaughn Mitchell, of Addison, on Friday.
Waxahachie Police issued an all-points bulletin via social media Monday afternoon looking for Mitchell.
Mitchell was served in the Ellis County Sheriff’s Wayne McCollum Detention Center, which is where he was being booked in on a failure to identify warrant, according to a Waxahachie Police press release.
“Detectives have worked tirelessly with family and community members to bring those responsible for Mr. Collins’ murder to justice,” the release stated.
Collins, 26, died after he was shot on Jan. 30 in an apartment at Grove Park Terrance on Peters Street, according to a previous Daily Light report. According to the previous report, two Black male suspects knocked down the door of the apartment and shot Collins. The suspects fled on foot before police were dispatched to the scene, where they found Collins dead from the gunshot wound.
In a previous Daily Light report, Waxahachie Police Lt. Marcus Brown stated that a command center was set up in February specifically for the investigation.
While the bond amount for Mitchell has not yet been set, Lemont currently sits in the Wayne McCollum Detention Center on $700,000 bonds for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, robbery and capital murder.
Mitchell had served 92 days in the detention center as of Friday.
