|A Clinton, Ky., man was arrested Friday in Union City on charges stemming from a November shooting in Hickman County, Ky. |
Dominique Harper, 21, of Clinton was located and arrested Friday by the Kentucky State Police in a collaborative effort involving the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Secret Service, Union City Police Department and Obion County Sheriff’s Department.
The arrest was the result of a KSP investigation into a robbery and shooting incident that occurred Nov. 8 in Hickman County, according to a Kentucky State Police news release.
In the November shooting, the KSP had received a 911 call that a man had been shot in the leg on KY 944 in Hickman County. Officers arrived to find the victim, 20-year-old Ryan Thomas of Mayfield, Ky., had sustained a single gunshot wound to the leg.
Thomas told police he was there to meet some acquaintances.
When he arrived, two black men armed with guns allegedly approached him and a physical altercation ensued, with one of the suspects shooting Thomas in the leg.
The two men allegedly fled the scene in a white Ford Crown Victoria, which was recovered a short time later in Clinton.
Investigation revealed Harper was one of the suspects and he had been at large since Friday’s arrest. The other suspect, 23-year-old Demarcus Robinson of Clinton, was arrested Nov. 13 on charges of robbery, assault, wanton endangerment, complicity to trafficking marijuana and terroristic threatening.
Harper was arrested in Union City by the TBI and was lodged in the Obion County Law Enforcement Complex on a charge of being a fugitive from justice from Kentucky.
The investigation is continuing by KSP detective Brett Miller. Published in The Messenger 12.24.12
