Bonds was shot and killed on the 1100 block of Horton Avenue in Edgehill just after midnight on Sept. 5, 2020.

Midtown Hills Precinct detectives and TITANS (The Investigative Team Addressing Neighborhood Shootings) determined that Murray allegedly shot Bonds in the head during a brief physical altercation then ran over him with a car.

Murray was taken into custody without incident at a market off I-24 north of downtown. The Davidson County Grand Jury indicted him this week.
